The annual convention is held in various parts of the country in early June each year featuring a new member orientation, guest speakers, informative seminars and visits to prominent collections of local members. The convention features an auction of usually 400+ quality still banks. All (primary) members will be presented a specifically manufactured convention bank or favor. Historically these become most collectable in their own right. The majority or members attending offer banks for sale or trade. A larger selection of antique still banks will not be viewed or offered anywhere in the world annually!
Each year the club commissions a convention bank or favor to be made and presented to convention attendees. The following are banks from the 2002 Marietta convention in Ohio. The two banks on the right are SBCCA designed and presented to primary members. The left was made in a very limited run by Reynolds Toys and offered for sale also.
