Produced by the Knowledge Center, an executive conference from S&P Global Market Intelligence
There is optimism and hope in the community banking industry again. Despite the struggles the industry still faces, there are more catalysts for growth and prosperity than we’ve seen in years, punctuated by the recent presidential election and the prospect of reduced regulation for community banks. In addition, interest rates are finally rising, emerging technologies are now more accessible for community banks and continued disillusionment with big banks means community banks can continue to gain market share. Financial technology partnerships make up some community banks’ best performing portfolios. Various forms of capital are available to community banks and M&A is robust among community institutions. Opportunities are on the horizon, so come celebrate with us in New Orleans as we discuss the many opportunities for the future.
Together in panels, networking events and one-on-one conversations, we will discuss what it takes to lead a high-performing community bank of the future, as well as the operational and financial strategies that are working in a variety of markets across the country now. We won’t dwell on the myriad challenges community banks face, but rather we will focus on solutions, strategies and opportunities that will help you thrive in a changing market.
The conference will take place in the culture-rich city of New Orleans at the JW Marriott, located in the Central Business District near the historic French Quarter steps away from celebrated restaurants, live music venues and all that New Orleans has to offer. Take this opportunity to get away from your day-to-day responsibilities and think strategically about your bank, while also enjoying fun networking events with your peers. Your spouse will want to join you!
We offer unparalleled content from the industry’s leading experts, including executives of high-performing banks, so don’t miss this opportunity to get the insights you need to maximize the performance of your bank. Bring your senior management team and board. The conference offers essential education for executives and the setting is a perfect place to host your board meeting before or after the event.
