Event Summary

For the last 12 years, the Community Bankers Conference, created by SNL Financial, has been the premier forum at which influential executives, board members, investors, technology providers, and advisers put forward their visions, views of the strategic issues facing community banks, and actions for success.

While banks continue to battle a challenging operating environment, we will explore the opportunities that await community banks now and into the future by Banking on the Possible.

Through panel discussions, networking events, and one-on-one conversations, you'll walk away with solutions for today and a vision for tomorrow. Discuss strategy, differentiation, and performance, while listening to in-depth presentations and networking with peers. In addition, celebrate the Top Community Bank winners and enjoy a unique opportunity to learn from the best.

2023 brought funding issues and liquidly into clearer focus for banks. Higher interest rates pushed many earning assets, particularly bond portfolios, deeply underwater, while funding costs rose materially, leading to pressure on net interest margins. Many institutions are contemplating what actions they can take to position their balance sheets for a higher-for-longer interest rate environment, including the prospect of higher credit losses on the horizon. And others are considering new partnerships and their strategic options as they struggle to grow earnings.

Now is the time for community bank executives to meet with their peers and most trusted advisors in the industry to gain insight into how to best position their institutions for success going forward. Join S&P Global Market Intelligence for an information-packed event focusing on the outlook for future profitability and different ways that community banks can respond to the market forces that continue to reshape the industry.
