HELENA, Mont., December 16, 2021 (Newswire.com) - The Montana independent Bankers Association is pleased to announce its participation with FedFis and other state community banking associations nationwide to offer to MIB's membership access to the 'Bankers Helping Bankers' peer interaction platform.
Bankers Helping Bankers is a collaboration and education platform created by community bankers for community bankers. 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 on 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 the 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.
The Montana Independent Bankers Association has faithfully served Montana's community banks for 55 years. MIB's mission is to provide its members the multi-level support they need to function at their optimum, which includes member promotion, benefits, advocacy, and training. And, in furtherance of that mission, MIB is pleased to roll out this new member benefit, which is free to participating member banks. Said MIB President Andrew West of Eagle Bank, "With the start of the Bankers helping Bankers program and the roll-out of the MIB state-wide digital marketing and community banking program campaign in May, the MIB has offered two new member benefits in 2021 and has done so without any additional cost to MIB members."
