What Are Bankers Saying?

"CBA's HR League has proven to be a valuable resource for increased knowledge and awareness on a variety of topics, through the curriculum provided at each meeting, while also providing the opportunity to create wonderful peer relationships with other HR Community Banking professionals."

- Stacy Warren 
Assistant Vice President/Corporate Secretary • First Port City Bank

"I love my job. I love banking and I love Human Resources. I am proud to be involved with several HR groups, from SHRM Middle Georgia to SHRM Georgia. While I learn a lot from these groups, sometimes I need something a little more specific and this is where I need help from my fellow HR bankers. Being a part of CBA’s HR & Talent Development League, I have connections to fellow HR bankers throughout Georgia where we share things like job descriptions, policies, and sometimes we just run ideas by each other. This group has been invaluable to me in my HR role at Pineland Bank and I am glad to be a part of CBA’s HR & Touchdown League!"

- Julia B. Shadwick, MBA, PHR, SHRM-CP
VP, Director of Human Resources • Pineland Bank

“The HR conference gave me a chance to get to know other HR professionals and get their ideas to bring back and help me do a better job. Because I am new at this job I feel I have a lot to learn from others. Everyone is so understanding and helpful when you have questions.”

- Alice Sellers, Bank of Hazlehurst
