The 2021 Black Hills Retreat will be taking place July 29 – July 31, 2021 at The Deadwood Lodge in Deadwood, SD! Deadwood’s summer celebration, Days of ’76, is taking place the same weekend as the retreat. Hotel rooms are booking up fast, so don’t wait to make your reservation!

Retreat Agenda & Activities

We look forward to re-connecting in person! Now in its 37th year, our annual Black Hills Retreat is a cornerstone for community banking in South Dakota. Designed with community in mind, this three day event is rich with actionable education sessions, entertaining special events for the entire family and endless opportunities to network with banking professionals.

A NOTE ABOUT TRANSPORTATION: All registrants will receive a complimentary, three day pass to ride the Deadwood Trolley. The trolley operates within city limits only and will be open to other members of the public.  Due to the Days of ’76 summer celebration, the trolley will be in high demand so we ask that you plan accordingly. As you board the trolley, please show the driver your ICBSD retreat name tag; this will serve as your ‘free’ pass. Information about the trolley, schedule and stops can be found here. A downloadable trolley schedule can be found here.
