In a world of huge banks, it's easy to forget that millions of folks in the United States bank at smaller institutions in their local communities. These are community banks, and they hold massive appeal precisely because they’re smaller, more nimble institutions. Just like big bank customers, community bank customers are getting credit cards and using them to pay for goods and services, and businesses want to set up merchant accounts with their local banks.

This week, Scott discusses all of this and more with his guest Tina Giorgio, who is the President and CEO of ICBA Bancard... the payments wing of the Independent Community Bankers of America. Listen in to learn more about community banking, and how it all ties into the greater payments industry.
