2023 AMBA Annual Fall Workshop

August 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm August 23, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

The 2023 AMBA Annual Fall Workshop will be held at the Ritz-Carlton in Philadelphia, PA, from 20 – 23 August. We hope you will join us!

For more than 60 years, AMBA has been the exclusive military banking trade association serving the banking community and our Nation’s armed forces. We are happy to announce we will hold this year’s Fall Workshop in person! There will not be a virtual option for this year’s Workshop.

AMBA conducts an annual workshop to provide an opportunity for its members, government officials overseeing military banking, federal regulators, banking trade organizations, and other stakeholders to exchange ideas and discuss the latest banking issues affecting the service members and their families.

We hope to see you there in August.

Registration is now open! Please click here to register for the 2023 AMBA Fall Workshop.
