Chief executive officers of insured financial institutions have been invited to meet with Donna Tanoue, Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), to discuss deposit insurance reform, regulation and supervision issues, and economic developments. The three meetings will be held May 31-June 1 in Minneapolis, June 7-8 in Dallas, and June 28-29 in Kansas City.
"We are always interested in having a dialogue with bank CEOs and, at this time, are particularly interested in discussing deposit insurance. We are soliciting feedback from industry officials as well as consumer groups and other interested parties as part of our comprehensive review of the nation's deposit insurance system. We are pleased to be able to co-host these meetings with the trade associations," said Chairman Tanoue.
The meetings will be co-sponsored by the FDIC, the American Bankers Association, America's Community Bankers, the Independent Community Bankers of America, and the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, the association of state bank regulators. Chief executive officers will participate in informal discussions with Chairman Tanoue and her staff.
