President's Message


The Bottom Line

Howard Headlee, President, Utah Bankers Association

Recently, I was rummaging through my mother’s basement, when I found a fascinating letter to my father from the White House, signed by Bill Seidman.  I guess I never knew of their relationship. The letter started, “The President and the Congress have agreed to hold a Conference on Inflation.  They would appreciate your participation . . .”

It concluded with, “The Conference on Inflation is a bipartisan national effort to deal with our number one domestic problem. Your participation will be a real service to our country, and I do hope that you will be able to give us the benefit of your thinking.”

That was pretty cool!  And very relevant to today’s economic circumstances.
