Does addressing it feel like a challenge?  How can you position your bank to compete in this new competitive landscape?   There are two distinct trends which are contributing to the de-population patterns happening both nationally and at the state and local level: 1) an Aging population and 2) Urbanization, which is the population and job flight toward larger metropolitan areas, such as suburban Detroit, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis or Madison, etc.  This is changing many communities across each state and the nation, and is impacting the ability of banks in these small/rural towns to compete.   Also adding to the challenge are the digital disruptors of traditional banking and payments, including companies such as Moven, Lending Club or SoFi, who are able to cost effectively deliver an ever-increasing number of banking services (to your customers) without the expense of a branch.   So with a shrinking customer base and an antiquated delivery system, what is a community bank in a small/rural town to do?  This webinar will address the challenge head on.  Through a series of highly interactive case studies the program will outline three steps that community banks should take to better understand their markets, refine their value proposition and reposition their banks for long-term survival and success.   Target Audience:  Executive officers and their teams Read More
