About the Bank Director Boardroom Forum on Lending:

Boardroom Forum on Lending, hosted by Bank Director in partnership with NASDAQ OMX®, assembles industry leaders to examine the board's role in lending. Bankers all across the country are beginning to tighten up their lending practices as a response to the regulatory pressure they are under to keep lending plain, conservative and firmly under control. Lenders and risk managers have also relearned the high positive correlation between asset quality and having a strong relationship with the customer.

While no industry has gone unpunished in the last few years, banks have been particularly hard hit, with loan growth lagging many expectations. From the recent sell off in public bank equities to heightened regulatory scrutiny, limited merger partners to far-less loyal customer bases, a bank's board has numerous issues to deal with. 

About Bank Director:

For the past twenty-one years, Bank Director has been the leading information resource for officers and directors of financial institutions. Chairmen, CEOs, CFOs, General Counsel, Presidents and Directors of financial institutions rely on Bank Director to keep pace with an ever-changing financial landscape. A more powerful and influential audience base simply does not exist at any other banking organization in the United States. Hugely influential, the company provides timely and relevant board-level information through its digital channels, conferences, research reports and Bank Director magazine.
