Round Tables

Each year, RMA sponsors a number of round tables throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia. These events bring together small groups of senior bankers who have a common interest in particular issues. Over the course of a day or two, they explore continuing and emerging opportunities and issues in an environment that provides both formal and informal opportunities for sharing ideas.

Please review the RMA Antitrust Guidelines; they apply to all round table guests.

Please note: RMA round tables are by invitation only to ensure that there is common interest among the participants for each event. For further information on individual round tables or to be placed on the invitation list, please call the RMA department identified by the key following each description.

RMA’s round tables add important value to your membership in the Association. This listing is intended to help you and your associates plan for the round tables scheduled for the coming year.

While participation is by invitation (to ensure quality of discussion among participants having common interests), RMA and the steering committees for these events would like to ensure that members of the RMA community are aware of the round tables that are coming up. Please share this schedule with your colleagues.

For further information on individual round tables or to be placed on the invitation list, please call the RMA department identified by the key following each description.
