I haven’t posted in 4 years since I retired from banking after 42 years.

But I did remember the date that Mary Beth Guard started Bankers Online and wanted to come back to congratulate all on what a great Web site this has become.

A little history, before BOL there was The Money Page, and ABA’s Compliance Talk. (both are long gone).

According to my research Richard Insley BOL # 5 registered on 10/26/00 @ 12 noon.
(I don’t remember who the first 4 were. Maybe Mary Beth or Michelle Petry can fill in the names.)

A bunch of us registered on 10/27/00 at 12 noon:

John Burnett - # 8
Andy Z - # 9
Jim Bedsole - #10
William J. Ludwig - # 11
Al Miller - # 13

And then it grew, and grew, and grew to becoming the Premier Web site for compliance issues.

I know some of you know that I had a perfect streak in attending all of ABA’s Regulatory conferences until I retired. I do miss those conferences and the opportunity to meet with fellow BOL members ( Hello to Waldensouth & Kaybee).

All the drinks are on me today. So let’s indulge and celebrate!

Bill, Louvera and I have wondered from time to time what happened to you. Glad you remember us! It is wonderful to hear from you. We do miss you here.

Truly, how did we function effectively before BOL? Thanks for all the resources, moral support, answers and information for the last 10 years. Hope there are many, many more to come.

Dip = shocked blush

I didn't know that this was THAT kind of bar. Not sure it is appropriate for me to stay in here.

But I will take some cake to go. whistle

Just returned from the SWGSB BOI School - several instructors and regulators referred to BOL as a resource!!!
I was proud to say I already knew that!
Congrats on 10 wonderful, helpful years!

I had to go look - I'm member #1943 - thought to myself - wow, that's a lot of members, then went and looked and saw member #24103 - that's 22,160 since I joined - WOW!

I started in banking almost 10 years ago, and BOL has been with me every step of the way...wasn't it www.bankinfo.com (or was that the money page mentioned above).

I was a lurker for over a year before I gathered up the courage to register smile - back then you could post in any forum without registering.

Member #115 here. Happy Birthday BOL! I have found answers to questions, jokes, recipes, solutions to problems, a ton of support, friends I'll have forever, and an answer to a prayer. Thanks so much! Imagine what could have been accomplished had I found BOL 133 days sooner......

Happy 10th anniversary to BOL and also to me. I can't believe I've been in banking for 10 years, but I can remember finding Moneypage.com shortly after I started in banking and right before it shut down. I hung on to Money page for as long as it ran before coming over to BOL. What an evolution. It is truly a great resource for every banker.

Thanks BOL

Member #1268 and I don't even remember how I stumbled into this website, but I certainly am glad I did...it's a lifesaver in more than one ways, including knowing you are not in this rocky boat alone!

Thanks BOL...you truly are the BEST!.

And, Mr. Ludwig..I'm impressed that you thought of this anniversary...wow!

As this is the end of the day for me and I had noticed that we did not thank our Vendors for making this all possible.

Thank you vendors
