OBA to host conference call for bank leaders regarding coronavirus

The OBA will host a live conference call at 10 a.m., Wednesday, for bank presidents, CEOs and other interested bank leaders to discuss the industry’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

OBA President and CEO Roger Beverage will host the call and will be joined by Oklahoma State Banking Commissioner Mick Thompson.

The call-in number and passcode will be sent out to everyone later this week.

In preparation for the call, the OBA will be gathering information on how our member banks are generally addressing the coronavirus crisis with their customers. Specifically, we’re interested to learn whether member banks plan to keep some or all of their lobbies open, at least initially. We’re also asking banks about any messaging that’s being sent to their customers and any other “special” processes and procedures being done regarding COVID-19.

Please send your bank’s information to jeremy@oba.com. We plan to share the results of this informal survey during Wednesday conference call.

In the meantime, stay up to date with the latest factual information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic particularly in the United States, and specifically here in Oklahoma. We will share any and all ideas and outreach efforts by the banking industry, by adding them to the OBA’s coronavirus information page.
