2017 Community Banking Conference

August 23, 2017

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City hosted the 2017 Community Banking Conference, titled Community Banking: Navigating Change, in Kansas City on August 10, 2017. The conference brought together bankers and industry experts to discuss the challenging post-crisis banking environment, how it has affected community banks, and what they are doing to remain successful. After a keynote address from Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Vice Chairman Thomas Hoenig, banker panels addressed their experiences with FinTech partnerships; strategic initiatives to respond to the changing banking environment; director engagement and education within banking organizations; and risk management programs and tools used to identify, measure, monitor and control prudential and compliance risk. We appreciate all of you who were able to join us and hope you found the information shared relevant.
