Four Former US Presidents Highlight Consumer Bankers Association Conference

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 00.42.26Former US Presidents visiting DC isn’t necessarily big news inside the Beltway, but four former presidents all attending the same conference – now that’s something…

The Consumer Bankers Association’s annual conference “CBA Live 2014: Red, White, and Banking” kicked off Sunday at National Harbor pulling more than 1,200 executives in retail banking.

Ans a source told us that four former US presidents were in attendance – which honestly, didn’t sound right to us. I mean Bill Clinton, sure, he’ll go anywhere. But George W. Bush at a banking conference? That seemed slightly ridiculous. But we do trust our source… So which four former Presidents could they possibly be talking about?

cma2014Why Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, of course! CBA secured the Washington Nationals’ mascots for what is sure to have been a memorable appearance for those in attendance.

Happy April Fools Day by the way. We promise not to take this too far today.
