One of the many things we hear from those who attend Directions is how much they love networking with others. Especially networking with those who face similar challenges. At Directions, we give you the opportunity to both share and gain insight with everyone, helping you resolve those common challenges. There are many open forums where you can interact with FPS GOLD employees on how to get the most out of our system. You can also discuss industry trends and future needs for new FPS GOLD products and services. Directions is the perfect time to let your voice be heard.



Training is another big reason why you should attend Directions. Onboarding with the FPS GOLD system can take weeks of training, but we make it simple by providing hands-on training with our experts. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable with the system so you don’t have to invest too much time with ongoing training. This also allows you to provide proper training for those within your institution. See the new products and services up close and interact with FPS GOLD employees on how best to incorporate these systems and processes into your business. Directions is a great way to get out of the busy office environment and attend some classes that’ll teach you how to become more effective and efficient than ever.

Entertainment and Fun

Fun is another important part of the Directions conference. We provide various activities each year that you can participate in to get to know others better. These activities are designed to let people bond and create friendships that improve the working relationship. It is also a time for clients to interact with each other in a less formal setting.


Big Announcement

At FPS GOLD, our mission is to help financial institutions compete, profit, and thrive by providing state-of-the-art banking software. As such, we are excited to announce something big at this year's Directions conference. This is something you don’t want to miss and we hope to see you there.

Still not convinced that Directions is worth your time? Here are some thoughts from past attendees:


“Directions is such a great tool that FPS provides. It gives us a networking opportunity to meet other banks, but they also make it fun, and we eat great for three days. It also gives us an opportunity to go to the classes to learn about the products that FPS has. The sessions that they have is such a learning tool that it’s beneficial for anybody. If you don’t come away from there having learned something, then you weren’t really trying.”

  • Sandra Gray | SVP - Deposit Operations | Shelby Savings Bank


“We walk through the doors like family there. You know everybody, you feel comfortable, you can talk freely, and it’s just great! It’s a great time. We’ll even sit in a class and think we know the software, but then we’ll get surprised. There are some things out there that we didn’t even know we could use. Which is nice.”

  • Haskell Strange | SVP - Operations & IT | Mineola Community Bank


“Directions is always fun, and there’s a lot of learning that goes on. We help each other with problems and learn how other people handle the same situation but just differently, and I think it makes us a better bank.”

  • Ammie Saucier | AVP - Branch Manager | Mineola Community Bank
