ABA Leader Frank Keating to Keynote IBA Management Conference

Governor Frank Keating

Gov. Frank Keating, president and CEO of the American Bankers Association (ABA), will be the opening keynote speaker at the 2012 Iowa Bankers Association (IBA) Bank Management Conference.

The January issue of the ABA Banking Journal has a feature article on Governor Keating. Keating discusses his role leading the American Bankers Association, advocating for the nation’s banks. The former governor of Oklahoma realizes the job of association executive involves politics and playing offense more than defense to make sure the banking industry is represented fairly and factually. “If I were a bank CEO, I’d like to be able to turn on CNBC or FOX or read a newspaper and see that my trade association is defending me against unfair criticism, or advancing a positive agenda.” Keating says.
