COLUMBIA, S.C., December 14, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Independent Banks of South Carolina is pleased to announce its participation with the FedFis and state community banking associations nationwide to offer access to Bankers Helping Bankers to its member banks in South Carolina.
Bankers Helping Bankers is a bankers only platform for collaboration and education. 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.
Teresa Taylor, Executive Director of the IBSC, says, "This exclusive and robust social media platform is designed to connect and engage leaders in the community banking industry through collaboration, networking, education and more.

"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.
