Texas Community Bank Compliance

A strong and robust regulatory compliance program is a must-have for our member banks – we hear that loud and clear!  In fact, IBAT’s legal and compliance offerings are often the most utilized and read information we provide.  Regular communications, regulatory guidance and acting as a reliable resource of information for members is the IBAT way.

So what are we trying to do with our Compliance Adviser program? Simple - build a network of support among community bankers that can provide “real world” solutions to complex, time consuming and expensive regulatory compliance requirements, without costing them more time or money.
