In March 2012, thousands of bankers converged upon Washington to participate in the American Bankers Association Government Relations Summit. A special emphasis was placed on the attendance of up and coming leaders in the banking industry. In total, 13 states identified 25 emerging leaders, and Robert Hucks was one of three representing the state of South Carolina. The ABA and the state bankers associations share an alliance in representing the banking industry and monitoring, impacting, and influencing the changing regulatory environment surrounding the banking industry at all times. The diversity, breadth, strength, and commitment reflected by the young bankers and future leaders of our industry will help deliver an even greater impact for our message in the future. We are proud of Robert’s involvement in this initiative, his representation of Coastal Carolina National Bank, and his dedication to the banking industry.
