The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) announced the selection of four new members to its advisory committee on community banking, including one new appointee from a Southwest-based bank: Gilbert Narvaez, Jr., President and CEO of Falcon Bank in Laredo, Texas.

Established in 2009, the advisory committee on community banking provides input to the FDIC on a wide variety of topics, including current examination policies and procedures, credit and lending practices, deposit insurance assessments, insurance coverage and regulatory compliance.

"The members of the Advisory Committee serve as the voice of community bankers nationwide," says Jelena McWilliams, FDIC chair. "We are fortunate to have such talented and highly respected professionals as a resource to provide key information and input to the FDIC on issues facing community banks.”
