FDIC Chair to Kick Off IBA Leaders Speaker Series

Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chair Jelena McWilliams will be the first speaker in the IBA’s six-month Leaders Speaker Series, which begins near the end of this month. McWilliams will present at 1 p.m. July 29. This hourlong session will include ample time for questions from participants. 

McWilliams embodies the prototypical American success story, having immigrated from Serbia at the age of 18 with very little in the way of resources, but plenty of ambition. Minimum wage jobs helped fund her undergraduate and law degrees at University of California Berkeley. After engaging in legal, regulatory and banking policy work, she rose to the position of executive vice president and chief legal counsel at Fifth Third Bank before becoming chair of the FDIC. 

McWilliams will discuss the post-pandemic state of banking and the FDIC's approach to regulation. She also will report on hot topics of interest, such as the Community Reinvestment Act, brokered deposits, the future of bank call reports, and the intersection of financial technology and banking. 

Register for the Leaders Speaker Series.
