CNN host Van Jones and CBS News’ Leslie Sanchez will provide their insights on the upcoming election during ABA’s first-ever Unconventional Convention, a new virtual event taking place Oct. 19-20.
The cable news veterans will provide an assessment of the race for the White House and control of Congress during the “2020 Election Outlook – Political Realities” session on Oct. 20. Jones, CEO of Reform Alliance, is a political contributor on CNN and host of Redemption Project and The Van Jones Show on the network. Sanchez, a pollster and market researcher by training, is currently a CBS News political analyst and documentary producer for the network’s 24-hour streaming channel CBSN.
The Unconventional Convention will provide attendees with a mix of live and on-demand content, including dedicated sessions for bank marketers, CFOs and operations professionals, agricultural bankers, bank directors and CEOs, as well as sessions with a fintech and payments focus. To help bring bankers together during this critical time for the industry, ABA is offering special registration discounts for this event, along with a “bring the bank” option, through which institutions can register up to 25 bankers for less than the price of six individual registrations.
