About the Conference of State Bank Supervisors:
The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) is the nationwide organization of banking regulators from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
State regulators supervise approximately 5,400 state-chartered financial institutions with more than $4.2 trillion in combined assets. Further, most state banking departments oversee mortgage providers and many other financial services providers, such as money services businesses (MSBs), payday lenders, check cashers, and finance companies. State regulators oversee 17,121 mortgage companies, 116,991 individual mortgage loan originators (MLOs), and more than 105,000 additional non-depository financial services providers across the nation.
The vision of CSBS is to be the recognized leader in advancing the quality and effectiveness of regulation and supervision of state banking and financial services. The mission of CSBS is to support the leadership role of state banking supervisors in advancing the state banking system and state financial regulation, benefiting the public by ensuring safety and soundness, promoting economic growth and c...onsumer protection, and fostering innovative state regulation and supervision of the financial services industry.
CSBS works to:
- Optimize the authority of individual states to determine the activities of their supervised financial entities;
- Enhance the professionalism of state regulatory agencies and their personnel;
- Represent the interests of the system of state financial supervision to federal and state legislative bodies and regulatory agencies; and
- Ensure that all banks continue to have the choice and flexibility of the state charter in the new era of financial modernization.
Background and History:
CSBS is a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. It was organized in 1902 as the National Association of Supervisors of State Banks. In 1971, the name of the organization was changed to the Conference of State Bank Supervisors to better reflect the ongoing nature of CSBS activities. For more than 100 years, CSBS has been uniquely positioned as the only national organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the nation’s dual-banking system.
