You are in for a real treat this Thursday night – the next generation of community bankers!
In 2004 and 2005, I published an article and audio seminar, “Where Would Jesus Bank?” We got so many requests that we published a checklist outlining the process of finding a new bank: My Bank: How Do I Find a Great Local Bank?
Solari and I bank at the National Bank of Malvern in Malvern Pennsylvania, which is owned and managed by several generations of cousins. Current chairman Lydia Willits Bartholomew joined me for a Solari Report in 2009 for a discussion on how to find a local bank.
This Thursday night, Lydia’s daughter and son, Jamie Bartholomew Aller and Andrew Bartholomew will join me to provide the latest information on a finding and building a successful relationship with your local bankers.
In March Catherine and Jon did a special Solari Report on Let's Go to the Movies. Last week, they discussed their favorite documentaries and the ways they help explain the world around us. See the blog post.
Subscribers can download or listen to the MP3 file of the Report. A transcript will be available this week.

(C) , Bank of America Securities and Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) in two actions over mortgage-backed securities. The FDIC, acting as receiver for two failed banks, filed the suits in New York federal court today seeking $77 million the banks allegedly lost on securities backed by residential mortgages.
