Registration is now open for the CFE Fund’s 2019 Bank On National Conference on May 29th in Washington, D.C.
Every two years, the Bank On National Conference brings together key stakeholders from multiple sectors across the country: local Bank On coalition program leads and their community partners, city administrators, financial institutions large and small, federal banking regulators, national nonprofit organizations, philanthropic partners, consumer advocates, researchers, and more. Conference topics will include innovations in safe and affordable financial products, strategies for banking access connectivity and integrating banking access into community programs, and measuring banking access success.
The CFE Fund supports local Bank On coalitions through best practices found in our Bank On Coalition Playbook. Chapters cover a range of topics; newly-released chapters include best practices for Programmatic Banking Access Integration, a handout for financial institutions on the benefits of Bank On National Account Certification, guidelines for Launching or Relaunching a Coalition, local Strategies for Navigating Financial Institution Partnerships and Account Certification, a Bank On Coalition Logic Model, a guide for using local Bank On data from the Bank On Data Pilot, and an annotated version of the 2019-2020 Bank On National Account Standards.
This press release announces that 28 banks and credit unions with over 21,300 branches now offer accounts meeting Bank On National Account Standards, newly updated for 2019-2020. Low-cost, low-fee, no-overdraft financial products that meet these national Standards are now already available across all 50 states and the District of Columbia at banks and credit unions that range in size from as many as 2 branches to as few as 5,500 branches.
