Dear <manager>

I would like to request your approval to attend the Illinois Bankers Association's The ONE Conference, which is being held on March 7-8 in East Peoria. I think the program will help me develop personally and professionally.

At this conference, there are seven learning tracks, all focused on banking: Marketing, Financial Management, HR, Leadership, Lending, Retail, and Tech & Ops.

The conference features 35 speakers and a tradeshow with solutions I can bring back to our bank. I would also like to network and connect with fellow colleagues on insights, industry issues, and to share challenges and successes.

The cost to attend the conference will be the registration fee ($345), one-night hotel ($145), and travel expenses. Most meals are included in the registration fee.

Your investment in me will certainly pay off! I hope to bring back new ideas and resources to help our bank function even better. I would greatly appreciate your approval and will work hard to make a return on this investment.

Thank you!
