What We Do

Information Resource to the Financial Community

Bank Director magazine

As one of the most widely read and highly respected magazines in the banking and financial services industry, our quarterly publication focuses on the core issues fundamental to a bank’s CEO, senior leadership team, chairman and independent directors. 

Conferences & Peer Exchanges

Bank Director develops and hosts a growing array of conferences, peer exchanges and training programs throughout the year designed to address the hot-button issues that senior executives and directors of financial institutions need to keep pace with the ever-changing landscape in the banking community.

Thousands of executives and directors have attended our conferences over the years including our flagship M&A event, Acquire or Be Acquired, which attracts over 700 attendees to Arizona. For directors, we offer committee-focused events and training programs that provide an in-depth look at the issues facing audit, risk and compensation committee members. Our peer-to-peer forums bring together CEOs, chairmen and directors alike to exchange ideas and share best practices to improve their bank's performance.

An online information resource for all things bank board-related, we operate as a content-rich, digital platform for senior executives and directors to find and share news, commentary and expert advice on the challenges facing banks today. Updated weekly with articles, videos and research studies, the site contains timely and insightful information on topics that range from organic growth to risk management, mergers & acquisition activity to new regulatory expectations, technology trends and legal challenges.


Throughout the year, Bank Director asks senior executives and directors of financial institutions to share their thoughts on board-specific issues like compensation, managing risk, growth, M&A and technology. Our reputation for qualified, independent research and analysis provides a bank's board members with unparalleled insight and information. 

DirectorCorps: Board Education Program

In response to the mounting pressures placed on the banking community, Bank Director developed a comprehensive educational program called DirectorCorps that provides focus, training and education for the entire board. This flexible and organized program combines our conferences, quarterly publication, director training videos and our extensive collection of online materials.
