Created in 2009 during the economic downturn in order to better understand the implications and complexities of new Dodd–Frank regulations; the committee has evolved to address not only a broad range of regulatory concerns but other issues affecting the banking and financial services industry including cyber security, community development, housing, business and corporate needs, talent acquisition, competition and other relevant topics.

2018 - 2019 Goals

Keep members informed on current and new banking-related issues and regulations through programming series:

  • Provide programming that is relevant, interesting and informative to a diverse group of stakeholders
  • Continue with existing successful events, but also explore creative ways to engage the banking & financial services community
  • Plan and organize the 2019 South Florida Economic Summit

Meet bi-monthly to provide educational and networking opportunities for committee members

Partner with the Government Relations Committee to address legislative issues affecting the Banking & Financial Services industry
