Statement of Applicability to Institutions Under $1 Billion in Total Assets: This Financial Institution Letter applies to all FDIC-supervised institutions.
This upcoming webinar (live meeting) series will offer bankers ideas and possible strategies to enhance efforts to promote community development and economic inclusion. Each webinar will highlight a topic that may be of interest to financial institutions, particularly community banks.
Institutions are responsible for assessing whether the ideas and information presented during the webinars are appropriate for the institution to pursue, given factors such as the institution's business focus, existing economic inclusion/community development strategies, financial condition, and market.
The free webinars will be held every other month. Registration is required.
The first webinar, scheduled for February 6, 2013, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (ET), will convey practical ideas on how financial institution staff can successfully promote savings during America Saves Week. To participate, institutions must register online by February 4, 2013.
The FDIC welcomes suggestions for topics to be covered during future webinars. Please submit suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
