    Over 30 guests and FWIT members from across the Association gathered for an hour of networking at last week’s 138th TBA Annual Convention in San Antonio.  We got some great visibility, made new non-member connections, and connected members across the FWIT world!

    Among those attending were our hostess, Whitney Banker from Associated Bank, Hazel Davis and Jill Carpenter from Jefferson Bank, Mary Lange from TBA, Kristen Ueckert from FORVIS, Lisa Garcia from The Bank of San Antonio, Novie Allen from Randolph Brooks FCU, Kelsey Goates from Wellington State Bank, Ellen Parsons from Frost Bank, Holli McClain from First Bank, Jim Hollerbach from Hollerbach & Associates, Sam Desmond from NContracts, and Nancy Kinder to name a few, plus an FWIT newbie from the San Antonio Group - Melanie Sweeney, of SHAZAM!

     Thanks Whitney Banker & Associated Bank for sponsoring!
