The Board’s Role in Strategic Planning
Presented by Philip Smith, Gerrish Smith Tuck
Every community bank ought to be engaging in some form of strategic planning, either formally or informally. Should the board be directly involved or only review plans that management develops? Or should they take other steps?
This session takes an engaging look at the strategic planning process and the board’s role in it. We discuss not only the proper structure and mechanics of effective strategic planning but look at some of the key topics the board should be addressing, including capital planning, your M&A strategy, risk management, creating value and liquidity for shareholders, and other matters.
9:20 a.m. - 10:10 a.m.
Balance Sheet Challenges for 2021

Four Ways to Move Planning Discussions from I Think to I Know
Presented by Tom and Kyle Hershberger, Cross Financial
You have been asked to participate in your bank’s upcoming strategic planning meetings. You plan to attend and want to take an active role in the planning discussions. The quality of your contributions will increase dramatically if you receive relevant information about bank performance, market conditions, and industry trends.
The right information will help generate strategic and actionable decisions. Beyond the financial trends typically examined during the planning process, there are four additional data sources that will improve the bank’s planning discussions. Each resource produces insights that can replace what managers and directors think they know about conditions and replace it with factual insights you know exist.
Together, a combination of employee surveys, customer surveys, customer relationship information, and FDIC data assessments will provide a full view of the conditions impacting bank success and opportunities for improvement. Join us to learn about the purpose and practical applications for all four data resources.
11:15 a.m. – 11:50 a.m.
