Dear President or CEO of Member Bank:

We are counting the days until our BCBA convention! I hope you have already marked your calendars to join us. The event will be held August 18-20, 2024, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Lexington.

Kentucky typically evokes thoughts of three things…Kentucky Derby, basketball, and bourbon. It is safe to say that at least one if not all three are very much a part of every Kentuckian’s DNA in some shape, matter or form. Community banks in Kentucky have proven to exhibit the strength of a horse, the passion for their home teams, and the warm feeling of home. Therefore, we have selected our theme for the 2024 convention to reflect these characteristics:

Horses, Hoops, and High Spirits

One of the highlights of our annual convention is the presentation of the Charles D. Bennett Education Scholarship to an employee of a Bluegrass Community Bankers Association member bank. The proceeds of our annual silent auction provide the funding for this great educational opportunity.

As President and/or CEO of your institution, we invite you to take this opportunity to nominate an employee from your bank for this scholarship. To nominate your community banker, please complete the enclosed form and return it to us at the following address:

P.O. Box 401
Franklin, KY 42135

The scholarship is available for use at all nationally recognized banking schools in the United States and is valued up to a maximum of $2,500 per year for 3 years per winner.

I encourage you to nominate someone from your bank to take advantage of this opportunity. Should your employee be chosen, you will receive advance notice so you will be able to register them for the convention to receive the scholarship in person. Please submit your nomination by July 31, 2024.
