50-Year Banker Awards

Honoring bankers with a half century of service to the industry

The Texas Bankers Association is proud to recognize bankers who have devoted 50 years or more of service to the banking industry. All eligible bankers are honored annually during a special luncheon at TBA's Annual Convention or Senior Management Summit if the convention is held out of state.

Honorees receive an award commemorating the milestone and a booklet that includes a photo and brief biographical sketch of each award recipient. Honorees are also recognized in TEXAS BANKING magazine, and news releases are distributed to the hometown newspaper of each 50-Year Banker.
