Community and Super-Community Banks: Risks, Opportunities and Their Future

In partnership with the North Carolina Bankers Association, Spilman is pleased to present this community banking symposium.

Date: Wednesday, May 6, 2015
Lcoation: Greensboro-High Point Airport Marriott, 1 Marriott Drive, Greensboro, North Carolina

Thankfully, short-term survival is no longer as critical an issue for community banks in North Carolina. As focus turns to growth opportunities and the shape of community banking in the longer term, we explore the changing dynamics and issues facing community and super-community banks in our area. This symposium will focus on high-level banking issues affecting financial institutions throughout the region but highlighting community banks in North Carolina. Renowned speakers and other legal and business professionals will headline the event and discuss a wide array of contemporary issues.

Registration: $225 (early bird) / $250 (regular)

Check back soon for a complete agenda and information on how you can register to attend! Registration will open in March.

Environmental Forum

The environmental practice arena is a dynamic regulatory space.  Laws and regulations continue to evolve; enforcement postures and procedures vary from state to state, and across industries and regulatory domains. Significant recent events in our region have brought environmental compliance and safety to the forefront of public debate.  Keeping up can be a daunting task. Spilman's Environmental Practice Group regularly monitors and provides comments on new and changing regulations as they arise. When our clients need guidance on hot or emerging environmental issues, and a simple newsletter or email update just isn't enough, our Environmental Forum provides more in-depth educational opportunities via webinars or seminars exploring those issues. For more information about upcoming Environmental Forum events, please contact Pamela Kesling, Client Relations Specialist, at
