Tennessee Bankers

Affiliate Programs

The Tennessee Bankers Association has chosen to cosponsor, support and promote a few choice programs hosted by other related entities each year. They are the Graduate School of Banking at LSU, and Bank Director.

Bank Director

An information resource to the financial community since 1991, Bank Director focuses on the strategic issues most fundamental to a bank's CEO, senior leadership team, chairman and independent directors.  A privately-held company based in Brentwood, TN with offices in Washington, D.C., our team's operational focus aligns with the educational, informational and fiduciary interests of a bank's board of directors and C-suite of executives. 

In response to the mounting pressures placed on the banking community, Bank Director has created a board education program.  This affordable membership program combines Bank Director’s conferences, our quarterly publication, director training videos and our online library of exclusive articles.  It’s not a one-time learning opportunity, but rather an ongoing collection of resources in-person, in-print and online.  Active participation in this program is sure to send a strong signal to your regulators that you are committed to a “strong board, strong bank” philosophy and that your board has the knowledge to exceed governance expectation.

The Bank Services Membership Program includes:

  • Subscription to Bank Director magazine
  • Access to Online Training and Board Briefs
  • Board and Executive Performance Surveys
  • Discount to Bank Director Conferences
  • Access to Exclusive Content on BankDirector.com
  • Weekly Member E-Newsletter

For more information on these services, please email or call Amanda Wages at 615-777-8461 or awages@bankdirector.com.
