The 38th ABA Conference will be held virtually on November 1-4, 2022. The online format and the dates of this year’s Conference were decided during the online meeting of the ABA Planning Committee held on March 3, 2022.
The decision to hold the 2022 Conference virtually was reached by the Committee after taking into account that travel restrictions may likely be still in place for some time and the hotels are not yet ready to fully open due to the ongoing pandemic by the latter part of this year.
With its decision to hold the 2022 Conference in an online format, the Committee agreed on the following: (a) that the Conference will be held over a spread of four consecutive days, with each day featuring one session focusing on a specific topic; and (b) that the ABA internal meetings – the Advisory Council Meeting, the ABA Board Meeting, and the ABA Policy Advocacy Committee Meeting – will be held separately before the Conference proper.
With regard to the Conference dates, the Committee members agreed to hold the four-day virtual Conference on November 1-4, 2022, and that the internal meetings be scheduled in the week prior.
The Conference theme was also decided by the Committee to be “Redefining the Future of Banking Through Digital Transformation” and that the major Plenary Session topics will include: (a) The Digital Transformation Journey; (b) Asian Banks: Navigating Through a Digitized Environment; (c) Digital Currency: A New Era in Banking; and (d) Emerging Trends in Banking and Financial Services.
More details on this year’s Conference will be sent to all members as soon as these are available.
