First Resource Bank of Chester County, PA Helps Pennsylvania College Students in Community Bank Case Study Competition
Exton, PA – March 21, 2018 – First Resource Bank of Chester County, PA is assisting students from Immaculata University in the 2018 Conference of State Banking Supervisors (CSBS) Community Bank Case Study Competition. First Resource Bank has worked with these students, giving them valuable knowledge of the banking industry, as well as tell its story through the competition’s platform.
The Community Bank Case Study Competition, facilitated by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), is a nationwide academic competition for undergraduate students. Through this competition, undergraduate student teams will partner with local community banks to conduct original case studies on relevant topics. The 2018 Case Study Competition will address how community banks utilize technology service providers and third-party vendors, investigating how technological innovation has impacted smaller institutions.
“The Chair of business at Immaculata University reached out to us to partner with them for the competition.” said President & CEO of First Resource Bank, Glenn Marshall. “We are eager to help these students learn and understand more about community banking and its long-term value,” he continued.
In addition to providing undergraduate students with an excellent opportunity to engage and gain valuable knowledge of the banking industry, the case study competition serves as a platform for community banks to tell their individual stories. It is an opportunity to build a further understanding of the community bank business model and the role community banks play in local communities, and it is a mechanism for connecting academics and millennials with the community banking industry.
