Women in Banking Conference coming to Rochester

Rochester Business Journal
October 22, 2013

The New York Bankers Association is holding its Women in Banking Conference in Rochester on Oct. 30 at the Hyatt Regency Rochester. The event includes area and statewide banking officials serving on panels and breakout sessions.

The conference has been planned by some of the most successful women bankers in New York, NYBA officials said. The Rochester program will feature industry notables, including:

•    Gail Cohen, chairman, NYBA; vice chairman, Fiduciary Trust Co. International;
•    Ruth Mahoney, president, Hudson Valley/Metro NY, KeyBank N.A.;
•    Thelma Ferguson, member, NYBA board of directors; segment head, Northeast middle market, JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A.;
•    Susan Holliday, director, Financial Institutions Inc.; president, Rochester Business Journal Inc.; and
•    Sandra Parker, director, Tompkins Financial Corp.; president, Rochester Business Alliance Inc.

The event, and one being held Nov. 14 in New York City, is part of a new program for NYBA this year.

“The banking industry in New York State has a proud history of women leaders, and this year, we are honoring that heritage and encouraging future industry leaders,” said Michael Smith, NYBA president and CEO. “Banks from around the state will be sending their current and future woman leaders to this program, which will focus on leadership skills, coaching and mentoring, developing strategic alliances, work-life integration, effective communications and more.”

Founded in 1894, the NYBA represents community, regional and money center commercial banks and thrift institutions in the state with 200,000 employees and more than $10 trillion in aggregate assets.
