The Farmers Bank Named Five Star Member
Frankfort, IN - The Indiana Bankers Association (IBA) has recognized The Farmers Bank with a Five Star Member award at the IBA’s Mega Conference on May 1st in downtown Indianapolis. The Farmers Bank earned the award in recognition of its commitment to the IBA in the areas of political awareness, issue advocacy, life-long learning, volunteerism and preferred service provider utilization.
The 2012 IBA Mega Conference broke all prior attendance records! A total of 1,249 attendees came to this year’s event, representing 102 Indiana banks. Tuesday’s keynote speaker was Richard Picciotto, the highest-ranking firefighter to survive the World Trade Center collapse, and the last fireman to escape the devastation, Richard "Pitch" Picciotto was on a stairwell between the sixth and seventh floors of the North Tower when it collapsed on September 11, 2001. An FDNY battalion commander, his is the harrowing true story of an American hero, a man who thought nothing of himself and gave nearly everything for others during one of our nation's darkest hours.
The Indiana Bankers Association (IBA) established in 1897, provides legislative services, communication tools, professional development opportunities, and products and services to the Indiana banking community.
