Alston & Bird sponsored this conference hosted by the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA). Mark Kanaly presented "Is the City's Money Safe? What City Attorneys Need to Know About Banks" on June 27, 10:30am - 11:45am. Georgia leads the nation in bank failures. Every week there are news articles about local banks closing, being sold or being taken over by the FDIC. Mark's panel addressed the following questions.
- What does it mean for your city if the city's bank fails?
- How do you know if the city's bank is healthy?
- What are banks required to do for cities as customers?
- Is the city making the most of its customer relationship with the local bank?
