ICBA released three customizable news releases that community banks can distribute in their local communities to reassure consumers amid the coronavirus outbreak. The custom documents spotlight the safety and soundness of the banking system and deposit insurance while showcasing the strength and resiliency of the community banking industry.
ICBA at 3 p.m. (Eastern time) today also is hosting its inaugural Community Bank Briefing, which will feature ICBA staff experts focusing exclusively on the coronavirus outbreak. Space is limited for the complimentary interactive webinar, but it will be recorded and available to ICBA members afterward.
ICBA’s Crisis Response and Preparedness Center offers community banks a variety of information and resources on the COVID-19 outbreak, including a recent “Sprint Exercise” on resiliency plans and an online course on preventing the spread of the virus.
Community bankers who have questions or need assistance can contact ICBA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
