CSBS was organized in 1902 as the National Association of Supervisors of State Banks. In 1971, the name was changed to the Conference of State Bank Supervisors to better reflect the ongoing nature of CSBS activities.
For more than 110 years, CSBS has been uniquely positioned as the only national organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the nation’s dual-banking system.
Who We Are
CSBS supports state regulators in advancing the system of state financial supervision by promoting safety and soundness, consumer protection and economic growth and fostering innovative, responsive supervision.
The vision of CSBS is to be the recognized leader advancing the quality and effectiveness of regulation and supervision of state banking and financial services.
Each year, CSBS publishes an Annual Report to highlight the work state regulators have done. The CSBS Annual Reports share how state regulators are collaborating with their peers in the federal government, coordinating with one another in the licensing of non-depository companies, and strengthening the dual-banking system.
