Golf Tournament
Donald Ross Course at French Lick
Sunday, Sept. 11 - Shotgun Start 11 a.m.

Test your game on the beautiful Donald Ross Course at French Lick. Originally constructed in 1917 by world-renowned architect Donald Ross, the legendary course has been home to many regional and national tournaments, including the 1924 PGA Championship. Ross is revered for his links-type courses with deep green-side bunkers and graceful, undulating greens. Each golfer will receive a box lunch at the golf course, and beverages will be available throughout the day. Awards will be presented during lunch on Monday. See you on the fairways!

Big Top Circus Welcome Party
Sunday, September 11 – 6:00 pm – 9:30 p.m.

Join us for a relaxing evening indoors at our circus-themed welcome party. Don your clown shoes and carnival clothing for a reception in the exhibit hall, followed by dinner and entertainment.



Future Leadership Division Silent Auction and Dinner
Monday, September 12 – 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

It gets bigger and better every year! The IBA Future Leadership Division’s annual silent auction is the place to be on Monday evening. You will have the opportunity to bid on treasures such as event tickets, golf items, decorative pieces, sports memorabilia and specialty items. We will once again use electronic bidding through mobile phone, or with the help of an FLD member equipped with iPad. To enhance your auction experience, we will be distributing silent auction information to begin the bidding a couple of days in advance. All funds raised will benefit Indiana BANKPAC. Don’t miss this chance to do some quality shopping, while supporting the PAC that supports Indiana banking.

Euchre Tournament
Monday, September 12 - 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Join us on the mezzanine level of the hotel on Monday night for some late-night diversion at the annual IBA euchre tournament. We’ll be playing a progressive tournament with multiple changes in partners, and with each player scoring individually. There will be fabulous prizes for the winners, with guaranteed fun for all who attend.

Yoga: Finding Balance
Tuesday, September 13 - 7:00 am – 7:45 am

Imagine a calming method that can lead to peace, serenity, and a long and healthy life. Thousands of years ago, this soothing practice was called “yoga,” and it’s still popular today. Kick off your shoes, wear comfortable clothing, and join us for an introductory yoga class. Mats will be provided. Space is limited, so please plan to attend if you sign up.

Chairman’s Banquet
Tuesday – 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

As always, the highlight of the Convention social activities is the Chairman’s Banquet. This year is no exception. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception, followed by an elegant dinner and recognition of IBA past presidents and Forty Year Club members.

Dinner will be followed by the musical entertainment of “Another Round” Indiana University's premier all-male (mostly single) a cappella group. The group pairs rich harmonies with their signature sense of humor to create an evening that will leave you with a tune in your head and a smile on your face. No matter what the scene, you could always use "Another Round."

Grand Prize Giveaway

The grand prize drawing takes place at the Chairman’s Banquet. This year we will dazzle the winner with a stunning piece of jewelry. Members must be present to win! To be eligible, you must be an IBA-member banker, a full Convention registrant, and be present at the Chairman’s Banquet on Tuesday evening.
