Golf Tournament

All golfers are invited to the men’s and women’s combined tournament on Tuesday, May 1, at Broadmoor Country Club. We will be using a four-man, best-ball scramble format. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third-place teams. The golf fee of $150 (or one Mega Buck) for bank members and $195 for associate members includes green fees, cart rental, box lunch and prizes. Golf will begin with a shotgun start at noon.

Mega Celebration

Back by popular demand, the Mega Celebration brings attendees together in the exhibit hall with food, drink and entertainment immediately following Wednesday’s sessions. This event is open to all registrants and is the perfect time to visit with old friends, make new acquaintances, and peruse the latest in bank products and services offered by our exhibitors. The Mega Celebration will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2.

Mega Bucks

To encourage full participation in the 2018 Mega Conference, the IBA offers a Mega Buck program that allows members to purchase multiple conference registrations at a discount. To utilize the Mega Buck discount program, a member purchases at least 10 Mega Bucks (MBs). A single MB covers either the golf tournament or one day of attendance at the conference. For example a person who registers for two days will use two MBs, and to also register for golf would require an additional MB. This year MBs are $145 each. Contact Susan Clark before registering to get a discount code. Note that Mega Bucks are reserved exclusively for IBA members.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations received by the close of business on Wednesday, April 25, will receive a full refund. Cancellations after that date and “no shows” will result in the registration fee being charged. Substitutions are always welcomed. Mega Buck registrations are nonrefundable.
