UPDATE

Given the current health concerns and unknown future environment, TBA has made the decision not to conduct our Wealth Management and Trust Annual Conference scheduled for next month (April 29 – May 1). At this point in time, it is our intention to reschedule the Conference for later this year and we have been working very closely with the Westin Galleria to create a new plan for the Conference. As soon as we are able to do so, we will notify you of the confirmed dates for the Annual Conference. In the meantime, please know that TBA and your Wealth Management & Trust Division are still open for business – we are just doing business a little differently – so please do not hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything with which we may assist you.
