NYLIB is...

The New York League of Independent Bankers (NYLIB) is a not-for-profit organization which provides community-based financial institutions in the New York metropolitan area and surrounding region with a unique forum for networking and educational opportunities. Through meetings and special events, discussions with industry leaders and regulators, news/regulatory updates, continuing education and other activities, we are dedicated to bringing independent bankers together to share their expertise and experiences. In an industry dominated by a handful of financial institutions, the need for an organization like NYLIB, which gives a collective voice to independent financial institutions and promotes the exchange of ideas has never been greater.

Throughout the year, we host industry leaders and experts from various sectors of banking, including elected officials and regulators, and present educational programs addressing current industry and regulatory issues and developments.
