October 20, 2008 (RALEIGH, NC) – Bernie Reeves, editor and publisher of Raleigh Metro Magazine, will address the North Carolina Bankers Association (NCBA) during its annual Management Team conference to be held Monday, October 27 at The Umstead Hotel in Cary.

In a speech entitled “An Editor’s View Of The Election,” Reeves will discuss the current banking crisis and its impact on the upcoming election.

“The current banking crisis has altered political as well as financial history”, says Reeves, who has served as founder and editor and publisher of Spectator Weekly, Triangle Business Journal, Triad Business and Raleigh Metro Magazine – currently approaching its tenth year serving Raleigh, Research Triangle and Eastern  North Carolina.

“I’ve seen a lot of gyrations in 30 years of observing the marketplace in North Carolina from my vantage, most notably the meltdown from 1987 through 1994. There are similarities and dissimilarities to this period in the current crisis.”

The NCBA serves all financial institutions in North Carolina, including Bank of American, Wachovia and BB&T. Bank executives and officials from across the state will attend.

“Our Management Team conference is an annual event that we organize to give the banks’ top management team the opportunity to learn, network and step away from the challenges of everyday bank operations,” said Blair Wicker, meeting director for NCBA. “This year’s conference will focus on the latest topics of interest to the banking industry as well as the upcoming election.”

Bernie Reeves’ address will begin at 11:30 a.m. For more information on NCBA and the Management Team conference, visit
