Banking Industry Surveys | Illinois Bankers Association

We promote several industry surveys to financial institutions throughout the year. We hope you take the time to participate in one or all the surveys. 

Community Impact Survey

Help Build Our Industry Image! This survey gathers important information about banks and how they are cornerstones of their communities. The information gathered will be analyzed and presented to the media, elected officials and others so they can better understand how critical financial institutions are to their communities.

2018 Survey Open for Participation

Regulatory Feedback Initiative (RFI)

About the Survey
The RFI is a nationwide long-term initiative created by the Coalition of Bankers Associations, L.L.C. It is an online survey that every bank should take immediately after each examination. The data collected will be a powerful resource for the entire industry and will help identify ongoing regulatory problems so we can work with the regulatory agencies to make necessary changes in the examination process. 

Custom Reports
A custom RFI report can be requested - Safety & Soundness and Compliance. We encourage survey participants to request a report as it can be used as a benchmarking tool.
