ANAHEIM, Calif., February 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - The California Community Banking Network (CCBN) is pleased to announce its participation in Bankers Helping Bankers, an exclusive online platform that promotes community and innovation among community bankers across the country. In collaboration with FedFis and state community banking associations nationwide, this cutting-edge resource - for bankers only - will allow CCBN member banks greater connectivity and access to industry opportunities.
Through data tools and dynamic user groups, Bankers Helping Bankers provides community bankers with a knowledge base focused on bank technology and emerging Fintech companies, as well as hot topics such as cryptocurrencies, banking as a service and direct digital banking.
"Bankers Helping Bankers is about community banks coming together to address their shared challenges, operate more efficiently and discover new sources of income," said Dave Mayo, Chief Executive Officer of FedFis, the developer of the platform.
FedFis partnered with the Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT) to bring the idea for Bankers Helping Bankers to life. "The future of community banking depends on their collaboration. For decades, banking associations have offered the means of collaboration for bankers, mostly using face-to-face gatherings. But those means are no longer enough because the industry is changing too quickly. Bankers Helping Bankers is the next iteration of the traditional value proposition of associations - the promise that together we can accomplish more than we ever could alone," said IBAT President and CEO Christopher Williston.
"When our community bankers get together at live or virtual events, they consistently note that sharing ideas, getting suggestions on solving problems and even getting inspired by their banking colleagues is the highlight of the event," said John Lingvall, Director of Member Services with CCBN. "Now with Bankers Helping Bankers, they will have an opportunity to do that not just a few times during the year but whenever they want and with an even larger group of bankers!"
