Please join us for our kickoff to the Fall Big Sky ATD Sessions!
We will be meeting in Bozeman, MT at the Main First Interstate Bank Branch (click the link to view the Google Map). Registration is open from 2:30 - 3:00 pm. The event will start at 3pm with Introductions and Chapter Business. That will be followed by presentations by our panelists, and then a Q&A session. At 5pm we will switch locations to The Bacchus Pub (1 block away) for light apps, drinks and networking/socializing.
Part of the Chapter Business will be explaining our plans for the upcoming months, voting in new Board Members, talking about why we are meeting in Bozeman, and why some attendees are on TV.
Don't let traveling the mountains and plains stop your from attending. If you can't meet us in person, you can register as a Video Conference attendee instead. By utilizing this option First Interstate Bank invites you to meet with others at their local branches. When you arrive at the branch, a friendly employee will set you up on the video conference equipment, and join you to the event in Bozeman. You will be able to see, hear and speak to everyone in attendance. We will communicate with you further if you choose this option.
Please be thinking of questions you'd like to ask our panelists regarding the topic of the event.
