2018 Tennessee Banking Forum

August 28, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm


We have combined our Risk Management and Community Banking Forum so that we can provide up-to-date information on accounting, risk management, tax reform, the economy and other industry hot topics. The forum is designed for a variety of community banking professionals including CEOs, CFOs, internal auditors, compliance officers, and audit committee members, among others.

Timely and informative, the forums will provide you with answers and insights into today’s financial industry. Understanding banking industry trends and major financial issues and the resulting accounting and regulatory implications are vital to your bank’s success. At Elliott Davis, we strive to educate financial institutions on opportunities that a changing world brings by providing analysis and perspective.

Banks continue to face increased scrutiny and pressure to perform at a higher level of operating effectiveness and efficiency. Even in the midst of these increasing demands, Internal Auditors, Risk Officers and Compliance Officers are challenged with auditing and monitoring the Bank’s operational, reporting and compliance risks, often times with limited resources. In addition, management teams and banks are trying to stay ahead of the competition and differentiate themselves from the pack. We hope you can join us to learn more about updates and trends impacting your organization.
