Now Accepting Nominations for Celent Model Bank 2012

Now Accepting Nominations for Celent Model Bank 2012
Remember when banking was broadly embraced as an honorable profession? That idea seems to have been lost among most businesses and consumers these days. Hardly a day goes by without a news story about some sort of alleged bank impropriety. In sharp contrast, Celent seeks to celebrate financial institutions doing things well. Each year, we honor a hand-picked selection of financial institutions who model excellent utilization of technology in banking. Celent Model Bank 2011 winners received recognition at our annual Innovation and Insight Day this past May in Atlanta, GA.

Comments

  1. Hi Bob, when I last checked the 2012 self-nomination form, it indicated a deadline of January 31, 2012. I had a look today, and it’s now showing a deadline of December 31, 2011. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed this change of date during the holiday season break, when many staff are celebrating time off with their families. Any way this date can be pushed back to the original January 31st date?
