"Be unconventional. If you must follow convention, you are doomed to conventional results."

More than 700 attendees will gather June 19-22 at historical Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island for a Joint Convention of the Michigan Bankers Association (MBA), the Ohio Bankers League (OBL), and the Illinois League of Financial Institutions (ILFI). More than a “conventional” affair, the joint convention will blend the best into a single, unique convention.
