Banker Advisory Board

Since its inception, GSB has actively involved banking professionals in program design, and promotion. The GSB Banker Advisory Board continues that tradition. The primary responsibilities of board members are to provide GSB with useful “consumer” insights and suggestions for program enhancements, assist GSB in its marketing efforts for all banker education programs, and help foster and coordinate GSB alumni activities. We encourage you to contact these banking leaders for more information about GSB programming.
