Maintaining Organizational Relevancy: New Ideas for Your Old Strategic Plan

Merely surviving is no longer enough in today’s rapidly changing environment. All organizations, and in particular community banks, must focus on maintaining organizational relevancy.

Doing that may mean putting some new twists on traditional strategic planning. Attend for practical examples of ways to manage your strategic planning process, update best practices, and how to re-energize your process, plus areas of focus to best position your organization for the future.

Compliance Question of the Week

Question: If more than one option applies to the transactor "role" in Item 2 of Part 1 of the Currency Transaction Report, what does the bank choose?


If more than one Item 2 option applies to a Part I person, a separate Part I section will be prepared on that person for each Item 2 option.

For example, if the Part I person conducted a $5,000 deposit into their personal account and a separate $7,000 deposit into the account of another person/entity, there will be one Part I on that person reporting option 2a on the personal deposit with that amount and account number in Item 21 “Cash in amount”.

There will be a second Part I on that person, reporting option 2b on the person/entity account transaction with that amount and account number in Item 21. Filers will proceed with creating a Part I for all other persons involved in the transactions, which in this example will be the person/entity on whose behalf the $7,000 transaction was conducted, reporting option 2c, with the $7,000 they are involved in and account number in Item 21.
