Phelps Honored by California Bankers Association with Inaugural Chairman's Award

On May 9, 2014, the California Bankers Association (CBA) honored Manatt senior partner Thomas Phelps with the inaugural presentation of the Chairman's Award at the annual Convention and Bank Counsel Seminar. The award is presented by the outgoing chairman of the CBA to "an individual who has had a meaningful impact on his/her career and is a valued contributor to the banking industry."

Phelps has long been an active participant in banking industry groups, including the CBA, where he previously served on the State Government Relations Committee and the Federal Government Relations Committee.

One of the largest state banking trade associations, CBA helps its member banks to succeed in California's dynamic marketplace.
