The Evolving Role of Community Bank Directors: What to do and Expect in the Post-Pandemic Environment

Presented by Peter Weinstock, Hunton Andrews Kurth

Banks are challenged to address the acceleration of digital banking and growth of online commerce, shift to remote work, and the decline in workforce participation rates that are the legacy of Covid. Such problems, however, are compounded by inflation, unrealized AOCI losses, quantitative tightening, liquidity outflows, and the first hints of credit risk. Get ready to discuss the roles and responsibilities of community bank directors in this context and what issues to consider.
