Community Banking in the 21st Century

The fifth annual Federal Reserve System/ Conference of State Bank Supervisors Community Banking in the 21st Century Research and Policy Conference will take place October 4-5 at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. The research conference will once again bring together community bankers, academics, policymakers, and bank regulators to discuss the latest research on community banking.

The Federal Reserve/CSBS research conference presents an innovative approach to the study of community banks. Academics explore issues raised by the industry in a neutral, empirical manner and present their findings at the conference. Community bankers contribute through participation on discussion panels and feedback to the research presented, by contributing to an annual national survey, and by serving as keynote speakers at the conference.

Guest speakers will include CSBS President and CEO John Ryan, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President John Williams and Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard.

The call for papers for this year's conference opened Feb 2, 2017.
