NEWARK, N.J., Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The #BankSocial Media Conference is quickly shaping up to be a can't-miss event for those in the retail banking industry. The North Carolina Bankers Association (NCBA) has recently joined the ranks of #BankSocial partners, bringing tremendous expertise and insight to the conversation of how banks can leverage social media to connect with communities and do great things together.
