The Community Banking Innovation Magnet stands as a testament to the resilience and adaptability of Texas community banks. Its roots trace back to the formation of the Texas Bankers Association’s Future of Banking Task Force, established to empower community banks not merely to survive, but to thrive in an ever-evolving landscape.

This collaboration was charged with identifying common challenges and devising innovative solutions. Their research was captured in these two publications, the Summary of Initial Findings and Recommendations – May 2019 and in the Community Bank Strategic Roadmap – Toolkit, which has helped community bankers to find their own path in the new era of banking change.
