2011 Workshop

2011 AMBA Annual Fall Workshop September 8-11, 2011 – The Greenbrier, White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia

For over five decades, AMBA has been the exclusive military banking trade association servicing the banking community and our Nation’s armed forces.  Through its mission of promoting financial independence and readiness, AMBA led the Nation’s banking industry in working with the Department of Defense to implement major payday lending legislation which provides protections for service members and their families from potentially abusive lending practices and products, while preserving the availability of credit products and services that are beneficial and are the hallmark of military banks. AMBA conducts an annual workshop for its members and government officials overseeing military banking. The AMBA Fall Workshop provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss the latest banking issues affecting the service members and their families.


The Greenbrier is an award-winning resort located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. As a National Historic landmark, The Greenbrier Resort’s classic architecture, exquisite interior design, carefully sculpted landscape, impeccable service and outstanding amenities have hosted distinguished guests from around the world since 1778. Today, The Greenbrier invites a new generation to come out and play. Enjoy relaxing pastimes, start treasured traditions, or set out on an amazing adventure together.  You’ll find endless vacation possibilities at The Greenbrier.
