Saltmarsh Hosts 11th Annual Community Bank Events in Tampa

9/28/2016 - By Zachary Farrington

Our 11th Annual Community Bank Events in Tampa featured three unique sessions with subject matter experts who focused on topics relevant in today’s banking and financial landscapes. The Compliance Funnel, which kicked-off the two-day event, featured speakers covering a broad range of issues from social media marketing and CRA best practices to regulatory concerns regarding the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and vendor management. Ethan Wall, president and founder of Social Media Law and Order, focused on how financial institutions can craft better social media strategies to avoid legal issues, both internal and external.

Cyber security concerns and strategies dominated the conversation of our Technology Funnel. Speakers from the FDIC, Aon Risk Solutions and the Association for Financial Technology discussed how to improve use of data analytics, assess your cyber security framework and identify new trends of cyber-related issues. To cap off the event, our own Stephen Reyes offered his technology forecasts for the coming year.

The Executive Forum began with an economic update from Scott Hughes, Director of the Risk Analysis Unit of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The highlight of the Forum was the CEO-2-CEO: Straight Talk on Strategy Panel which featured Andrew Samuel of Sunshine Bank, Bruce Page of Intracoastal Bank, and Steve Hickman of FNB Pasco. Marian Johnson of the Florida Chamber’s Political Institute discussed Florida’s election landscape and political updates impacting voters in the 2016 Presidential Election. Finally, Saltmarsh’s Paul Allen concluded with an accounting update on how CECL and new standards, among other issues, will impact community banks.
