The Pennsylvania Bankers Association, located in Harrisburg, is the state’s leading banking trade association, representing an expansive and diverse membership. The Association offers extensive continuing education programs, provides government relations representation on behalf of the industry, and offers numerous products and services for banks and their employees. PBA hosts at least seven meetings a year, including the Annual Convention and six educational meetings for subsets of the banking population, such as the School of Banking, Commercial Lending, and the Advanced School of Banking. These events keep members up-to-date on the latest developments in the industry, allow them to expand their professional network and help them succeed in the competitive world of financial services. JUJAMA provides the web-based conference platform and mobile event app for PBA’s meetings
Addressing Security Concerns
Security and regulatory compliance are major concerns in the banking industry. JUJAMA’s software allows PBA members to enter the conference platform via the association’s website, using their login credentials. This ensures that participants’ login data is encrypted and secure, and that everyone logged into the event platform is a legitimate participant in the association event.
Pre-Programmed Push Alerts
The Attendee Notification System is a popular feature of the JUJAMA mobile app and web-based conference platform. Connie Ferraro, Director, Information Technology for PBA said, “The app is fantastic. We use it to send alerts to our attendees. For example, our Advanced School of Banking has three different tracks, each with its own schedule. We send out the agenda for each track in an alert the night before, and attendees love being able to review their schedule at a glance. We also appreciate how much paper we are saving. We even use the Attendee Notification System to post presentations, so participants can save the ones that are relevant to them.”
Connie Ferraro added that JUJAMA’s web-based conference platform helped to round out the mobile app’s capabilities for attendees who brought their laptop to educational sessions rather than their smartphone. “Our members love the online conference interface. People check the agenda, make notes, anything they need to do, without having to also consult their phone. Having both the online interface and the mobile app really makes JUJAMA stand out from other event apps.”
