The Countdown is on for the Best Banks in America Super Conference!
"I've attended 24 years of high-performance networks and affiliations. They all have magic formulas and calculations to tell me how much more money I can bring to margins and profit. The missing ingredient was "how." We finally found an integrated system of both numbers and understanding with Roxanne Emmerich's system. We have a real program that has translated to high energy and commitment for every single employee. It works!"
R.L. Harmon Jr., Chairman and CEO, Bank of Tennessee
This is a unique experience unlike any other banking conferences or events you may have attended and is entirely focused on 4 key things: Revenue generation, strategic and profitable growth, proven systems to command premium pricing and open sharing of best ideas with other Best Bankers in America.
The Best Banks in America Super Conference is put on by the The Institute for Extraordinary Banking to take ambitious, elite, results-oriented bank executives and board members on an illuminating journey to explore how greater purpose, joy, and meaningful impact create fierce brand loyalty and marketplace leadership and deliver exceptional profits.
Not only can these concepts drive your bottom line, they create a sustainable competitive advantage, re-igniting everything you do with more joy, happiness and meaning to fulfill a higher purpose for good.
At the Best Banks in America conference we’ll start with…
IF history repeats itself, the demise from 16,000 banks in 2008 to less than 5800 in 2017 means we’ll only have 2000 banks left in 5 years.
The Problem...VUCA—a trendy managerial acronym short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. It’s the “it’s nuts out there” acronym.
Brilliant minds predict banking is at the top of the list of all industries ripe for VUCA—the kind that has taken out over 50 percent of an industry in a year or two. Thus, the “it’s nuts out there” concept…
The challenge is your team might be blind to it because you’re having a record year…and who isn’t?
As a leader, you know how hard it is to change the necessary behavior during good times…but some are.
The problem is the myths—those “truths” still talked about at most conferences and banking schools that just aren’t so.
Do your people fall for these accepted-as-fact bank-destroying myths that the people at the Best Banks in America don't believe?
Myth #1: New Accounts is a Good Measure of Success: When 87% of those new customers are unprofitable...and for banks up to $2 Billion, your top 100 customers account for anywhere from 50 to 140% of your profits, could you think of a worse metric???
Myth #2: NIM Compression is a Given: Leading the pack of those bankers that won't survive are those that can't figure out how to get their NIM up over 4—actually, closer to 5.
Myth #3: You Can't Command Premium Pricing on A+ Credits: Not only can you, you MUST if you want your bank to be around in 5 years. Good luck if you can't get out of the commodity game or try to do it with the "we have good people" and "we have good service" stories. That's what every bank says—and they don't believe it and they sure won't pay more than 25 basis points more for it—and that's not enough.
Myth #4: Advertise CD Rates When You Need Deposits: Now...that's crazy! Your cost of funds goes through the roof AND you know those customers will dump you like a rock for a better rate just when you most need more deposits.
Myth #5: A Sales Culture Happens When Sales Training, Goals, and Incentive Pay are Put in Place: Actually, thousands of banks have tried that and have little to no impact on sales results—certainly nothing sustainable. Unlike most bank CEOs who attempt sales training in hopes of growth and premium pricing, discover the secret formula of substantial and sustainable results. Note, it has little to do with sales training, goals or incentive pay.
The list of myths still taught at many conferences and banking schools goes on—but if you look at the trend line of banks, you can see, banks who believe these things are falling like flies.
In 2017, now more than ever before, if you don’t forge full-steam ahead, you risk losing the precious ground you’ve worked your entire career to take.
"We set our goal to grow our core deposits by $1 million dollars a month, $12 million for the year, and through the first quarter of 2015 we are up $7 million. We believe what we are doing with The Emmerich Group is making a difference!"
S. Jones, President, Home State Bank
Welcome, I’m Roxanne Emmerich and I’m the Founder of the Institute for Extraordinary Banking—an organization I started during the great recession to save community banking and all the benefits communities receive from having entrepreneurial and community-minded banks as a backbone for those. communities. When Gallup identified “banker” as the least respected profession, I was concerned not only for our industry—but for the people who need our industry to thrive so that they can thrive. I started as an ag and commercial lender, ran a denovo, started two denovo’s as a key investment partner, and have spent 27 years working with the best banks in the country as the CEO of The Emmerich Group—the only firm that bring high performance to banks through integrated strategy, marketing, sales, culture and service iron-clad systems.
I’m committed out of my mind to save community banking—if community banks go down, so goes communities and then America. And I know that one of the problems with community banks is they fail miserably about how to differentiate themselves. That’s why I started the Institute was to offer the “Banky” Award—a clear way for people to choose them and pay them more. I also realized that there’s a lot of bad information out there and that is why so many bankers couldn’t work any harder are not probably going to make it—they’re working off the wrong model so there is nothing they can’t do to not be “disrupted.” That’s why I started Extraordinary Banking TV for execs and board members to get the right information from the very top performers. I welcome you to attend the Best Banks in America Super Conference to see what is possible for you with the tools and the insights shared by others who are the best of the best.
And now, I'm sponsoring and facilitating what I believe will be the best conference this year for community bankers...
"We not only met EVERY goal in ALL our branches, but we exceeded many of our goals by 100 percent! Our entire organization acts like a team! I can't imagine any CEO who wouldn't want this."

"Our ROA is 2.23, our ROE is 17.5, and our net interest margin is 5.28. We increased net interest margin over 100 basis points while we were up against Farm Credit undercutting us every day. We can't say enough about The Emmerich Group and the difference it made for us."

(Regular Retail Price is $2,495 per person. You save $1,997.50 off each person) Early Bird enrollment ends July 10th AND, because of registrations already booked, we only have seating available for an additional 82 that respond. It will sell out.
We're so convinced that this is the only "must attend" event in community banking and that you'll get more bank-building ideas, tools, blueprints, and strategies in these three days than you'll get the entire year outside the Community Banking Super Conference™, we're willing to take more than our fair share of the risk, just to make it easy for you to say "maybe"...
So...book your tickets and attend the entire event—all three days. If by the end you feel it wasn't worth the investment, just hand in your conference materials and tell one of our team members, and we'll refund every penny you paid for your conference tickets. PLUS, we'll pay you up to $500 in documented travel expenses per person from your bank. Yes, you read that right—you can attend the entire event, and then decide if it was worth the investment.
But we don't stop there...we also guarantee your results. If after six months you've implemented at least five of the strategies we're going to show you, and you've not seen AT LEAST a 10-times return on your registration investment, we'll refund your full paid registration fee.
Registration is simple and takes just a few moments…act now, before we hit capacity, and are forced to leave behind those who delay.
I will say that this IS your path to building an elite-level bank. Past attendee banks of all sizes and every conceivable condition become peak performers across all key areas and move their needles far beyond what they thought possible.
NOW is the time for action.
See you at the conference,
Roxanne Emmerich CEO - The Emmerich Group
