As an extension of the Louisiana Bankers Education Council, LBEC Ambassadors will promote financial literacy and support future banker development. Ambassadors are LBA member bank employees who want to network with Louisiana bankers and be involved in the Louisiana banking industry. 

Ambassadors will work with current LBEC councilmembers to promote LBEC events and opportunities by:

  • Attending one annual Ambassadors meeting, typically held during IMPACT Conference in January
  • Committing to participate in at least two of the following programs per year (self-reporting)
    • Attend and promote LBEC regional fundraisers. Three regional fundraisers are held per year, each in a different region. Examples from 2023 include:
