TCH Annual Conference

Annual Conference

The Clearing House has a 165-year tradition of addressing the interests of the commercial banking industry in the United States and helping to chart the course of America's financial industry.

This summer, the advocacy functions of The Clearing House Association and the Financial Services Roundtable combined to form a new organization, Bank Policy Institute, focused on promoting policies that foster a vibrant banking system.

The Annual Conference provides a forum for the industry's leaders to examine the changing dynamics of the bank regulatory and payments landscapes.

With two and half days of high-level keynote speakers, in-depth expert panels, and built-in time for networking, there are many opportunities for significant brand exposure and to engage with senior level bank executives on today's most pressing issues for commercial banks.

The Clearing House

Since its founding in 1853, The Clearing House has delivered safe and reliable payments systems, facilitated bank-led payments innovation, and provided thought leadership on strategic payments issues.

Today, The Clearing House is the only private-sector ACH and wire operator in the United States, clearing and settling nearly $2 trillion in U.S. dollar payments each day, representing half of all commercial ACH and wire volume.  It continues to leverage its unique capabilities to support bank-led innovation, including  launching RTP®,  a real-time payment system that modernizes core payments capabilities for all U.S. financial institutions. As the country’s oldest banking trade association, The Clearing House also provides informed advocacy and thought leadership on critical payments-related issues facing financial institutions today.  The Clearing House is owned by 26 financial institutions and supports hundreds of banks and credit unions through its core systems and related services. 

The Bank Policy Institute

The Bank Policy Institute (BPI) is a nonpartisan research and advocacy group, representing the nation’s leading banks and their customers. Our members include universal banks, regional banks and the major foreign banks doing business in the United States. Collectively, they employ almost 2 million Americans, make 72% of all loans and nearly half of the nation’s small business loans and serve as an engine for financial innovation and economic growth.
