2014 Community Banking in the 21st Century Survey
The Federal Reserve System and the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) are hosting the 2nd annual Community Banking in the 21st Century conference in St. Louis, Missouri, on September 23 and 24, 2014. The purpose of the conference is to bring together academics, policymakers, bank supervisors, and community bankers to focus on the challenges and opportunities that community bankers face in the 21st Century.
In preparation for this year’s conference, a national survey was developed by CSBS staff, Federal Reserve staff, and a selected group of academics. The goal of the survey is to hear directly from the community banking industry regarding key challenges they’re facing in 2014, and to gather data on key issues that can be used by community banking researchers. The data from the survey will be compiled and released during the conference.
This voluntary and anonymous survey is a critical opportunity for state banks to highlight critical issues and demonstrate the value and importance of the state bank system. The survey is expected to take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete; however, some preparation is required. Therefore, we asked that you have the following 6 data points ready prior to taking this year’s survey:
Last year, more than 1,700 community bankers participated in a nationwide discussion on the state of community banking in the U.S. Last year’s findings are available at: http://www.stlouisfed.org/CBRC2013/town-hall.pdf
Your completion of the survey before the end of June 2014 is greatly appreciated. Should you have any questions, please contact Deputy Commissioner Scott D.
