Federal Reserve System and the Conference of State Bank Supervisors

Community Banking in the 21st Century

Sept. 23-24, 2014, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

Michael Stevens, CSBS and Andrew Meyer, St. Louis Fed Presentation of “Community Banking in the 21st Century: Opportunities, Challenges and Perspectives” report

 

Michael Stevens, senior executive vice president with the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, and Andrew Meyer, senior economist in the Supervisory Policy and Risk Analysis unit of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, present Community Banking in the 21st Century: Opportunities, Challenges and Perspectives, a unique report that details conditions facing today’s community bankers. The report contains the results of town halls held across the country this past spring and summer by state regulators, as well as a comprehensive survey administered by state bank commissioners that revealed key data that helps quantify the challenges facing community banks today, and how they are responding to market conditions. Together, both components provide an opportunity to connect the quantitative data in the survey with the stories and experiences of bankers serving their communities.
