2011 Bankers and Bikes May 13, 2011
The vast majority of successful bankers thrive on interacting with people of all ages, and from all walks of life—including fellow bankers.
Bankers and Bikes is a loosely organized social group made up mostly of current and retired bankers, their significant others, and friends they’ve made along the way. A shared interest in motorcycles, the outdoors, and open-road adventures has motivated Bankers and Bikes to plan annual summer rallies whose routes, timing and destinations differ from year to year.
The 2011 Bankers and Bikes rally destination is Colorado Springs, Colorado. From their “home base” of Cheyenne Mountain Resort, bikers will be free to take preplanned day trips or spontaneous rides to various points of interest. Popular attractions include the U.S. Air Force Academy, the Royal Gorge, Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings, Garden of the Gods Park, Cave of the Winds, Seven Falls, white water rafting, wineries, gold mine tours, and more.
The rally begins June 18 in Jefferson City, Missouri. For trip and registration details, visit www.bankersandbikes.com.

Bankers’ Bank of the West Employee Embarks on Next Adventure After Nine Years of Service May 4, 2011
When Beverly Jennings received an offer of employment from Bankers’ Bank of the West in 2002, she wondered briefly whether the phone call was a prank: Her proposed starting date was to be April 1, after all.
“I pictured myself reporting for my first day on the job, and the entire office saying ‘Just kidding,’” she said. “Wouldn’t that have been a great April Fools’ Day joke?”
But the offer turned out to be genuine, and over the following nine years Beverly proved to be among the bank’s most conscientious and congenial employees. She worked first in the Federal Funds area, transferring later to the Operations Department. In March of 2011 she announced her decision to retire in May.
Beverly’s Denver colleagues honored her by expressing their appreciation and good wishes—along with a bit of envy—at a May 3 luncheon at the office. May 9 marks Beverly’s first official day of retirement.
Bankers’ Bank of the West is indebted to Beverly for her loyal service, and the entire BBW team thanks her for sharing a unique blend of experience, work ethic, courtesy, and dry humor that made teamwork all the more enjoyable.
Congratulations, Beverly! Enjoy the many happy times ahead.
By offering your observations and comments on proposed amendments to Regulation CC (the Availability of Funds and Collection of Checks Act), your bank can bring important observations and concerns to the attention of the Federal Reserve Board before the amendments are made final.
Bankers' Bank of the West has announced a price reduction on BIDS-CM Quick Connect, an opportunity for community banks to offer a powerful online business cash solution directly from the community bank to its business customers.
December 2010 -- Since the third-quarter announcement of LendingTools.com as Bankers' Bank of the West's new image cash letter partner beginning January 2011, members of BBW's Operations staff have been laying the groundwork for a smooth transition.
