Bank research conference sets in-person agenda for first time in three years

The annual bank research conference for the federal bank deposit insurer will be held in September as a mixed virtual and in-person event, the latter part the for the first time in three years, the agency said Tuesday.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) said its 21st Annual Bank Research Conference will be Sept. 14-16, with the first day’s event held virtually, and those on Sept. 15 and 16 at the FDIC’s L. William Seidman Center in Arlington, Va. Those sessions on the latter two days may also be attended virtually, the agency said.

Registration is now open for the event and will remain open for in-person registrants until Aug. 15, the FDIC said. All those who register to attend in person must complete a vaccine attestation form. “In-person attendees who are not fully vaccinated or who decline to provide information about their vaccination status will be required to adhere to the associated additional health and safety protocols at that time,” the agency said.

Virtual registration is open through Sept. 9, the FDIC said. However, all in-person registrants will automatically receive virtual attendance links and information as well.
