CSBS National Survey of Community Banks Is Open

Washington, D.C. – The Conference of State Bank Supervisors and state bank regulators encourage community banks to participate in its ninth annual National Survey of Community Banks, which is open through July 12.  

This year’s questions focus on current bank conditions and emerging issues, including technology and inflation, product service design and offerings and the future of community banking. 

The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. Participating community banks will need to provide their FDIC certificate number, but all information collected is for research purposes only and will not be linked to any institution.  

Survey results will be released at the tenth annual Community Banking Research Conference, sponsored by CSBS, the Federal Reserve and the FDIC. Last year’s survey of nearly 500 community banks showed that as the pandemic lingered, they experienced historic levels of deposits and narrow net interest margins. The pandemic, increasing technology costs and cybersecurity concerns were top issues.

The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) is the national organization of bank regulators from all 50 states, American Samoa, District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. State regulators supervise roughly three-quarters of all U.S. banks and a variety of non-depository financial services. CSBS, on behalf of state regulators, also operates the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System to license and register non-depository financial service providers in the mortgage, money services businesses, consumer finance and debt industries.
