BankBryanCave Version 2.0

BankBryanCave Version 2.0

February 23, 2017

Authored by: Robert Klingler

Brickman Cleans Up!Over the last several weeks, we’ve updated the BankBryanCave.com site to a new design, new hosting service and new e-mail subscription service.  The updates have been long overdue, and should help us continue to provide interesting and useful content.  As expected, the site redesign also engendered lots of internal conversation and renewed interest in the platform.  Accordingly, I hope that the next weeks and months will continue to provide new voices and new perspectives on issues affecting community bankers.

As with the industry as a whole, we are eagerly awaiting upcoming regulatory relief and changes.  Although the changes will hopefully reduce the regulatory burden for many, change is never easy, and we intend to address what community banks will need to do to adjust to those changes.  We also expect that the market for de novo banks will continue to add steam.  With several clients looking at filing de novo applications, we hope to share successes (and tidbits to learn from mistakes) with others.

New Mailing Service

One of the items I’m most happy about (yes, I live a strange life) is a new service to handle our e-mail updates from BankBryanCave.  For those already subscribed, you should receive duplicate copies with this blog post, one from webmaster@bankbryancave.com that looks like the old alerts, and a new alert from communications@bankbryancave.com.  We’re then going to be turning off the old e-mail service, so you shouldn’t have to take any action.  I apologize in advance for the duplicate e-mails, but felt that was the best way to ensure that the new system is working before we turn off the old one!  If you run into any problems, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me at Robert.Klingler@bryancave.com.  For those interest in getting e-mail alerts whenever a new post is made, subscribe to the blog. You can select to receive alerts immediately, only once a day, or only once a week (or all three, if you just can’t get enough!).

BankBryanCave.com has Moved!

BankBryanCave.com has Moved!

October 6, 2011

Authored by: Robert Klingler

Last night the site completed a change to a new web site hosting service.  We hope you will ultimately find it more responsive (and stable), and that responsiveness and stability will allow us to continue to provide our thoughts on community banks.

We still have several tweaks that we’re continuing to work on, and we’ve (temporarily) lost some functionality.  But we think we can get items resolved quickly.

Details to follow.

BankBryanCave.com Spring Cleaning

As I turned a year older last weekend, I realized that BankBryanCave.com could use a spring cleaning, along with a new feature or two.  In addition to simply needing a few changes, I needed to prove to myself that I could still make the changes myself.  I’m sure I’ve broken a feature or two, and possibly added services that no one will ever use, but it was time to update the blog.

Most interestingly, we’ve added comments. All comments are moderated, but we would like to encourage further dialogue with our site’s visitors.  We don’t expect there to be a lot of comments, but sometimes our readers share interesting additional information that we would like to facilitate for broader distribution.

We’ve also vastly improved BankBryanCave.com’s search results.  Searches should now actually result in you being able to find whatever you were looking for.

The last change of any significance is that we’ve added options to easily share each post via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.  (I can’t tell you how many readers have asked us to more easily share BankBryanCave.com posts with their Facebook friends!… probably because no one has ever previously had that thought.)

New Page Focused on Dodd-Frank Act

New Page Focused on Dodd-Frank Act

September 23, 2010

Authored by: Robert Klingler

In an effort to make it a little easier to find information about the Dodd-Frank Act, we have created a new page on BankBryanCave.com that highlights our best summaries of the Regulatory Reform Act and also provides copies of several of the presentations that Bryan Cave has given on the Act.

The latest and greatest information will continue to be posted directly on BankBryanCave.com, but if you’re looking for quick overview of the Act or easy links to our most popular posts on Dodd-Frank, please check our our new Dodd-Frank page.

New Email Subscription Options

New Email Subscription Options

August 9, 2009

Authored by: Robert Klingler

Due to technical difficulties at BankBryanCave.com over the last several weeks, email updates were first slowed by more than 24 hours and then ultimately completely stopped working last week.  By switching to a third party provider, I believe we have hopefully fixed those problems for the foreseeable future.

In addition, we are now offering three subscription choices: instant alerts, daily emails and weekly emails.  Accordingly, you can now have as many (or as few) BankBryanCave.com emails as you desire.  To sign up, simply visit our Email Sign-up page and select the frequency of updates that you would like.

I’ve taken the liberty of converting everyone that had previously signed up into the new system, so if you were comfortable with your prior settings, you shouldn’t have to do anything.  If, however, you’d like to change anything, you should have a link at the bottom of each email you receive to change your subscription settings.

Daily Emails Fixed

Daily Emails Fixed

March 6, 2009

Authored by: Robert Klingler

Thanks to the diligent actions of one client, we determined that we had a bug in BankBryanCave.com’s daily emails.  That bug has now been fixed (we hope), and everyone that signs up should once again receive nightly emails with the prior days posts.

If you would like to sign up for a daily email (and you can always unsubscribe later), please enter your email address in the “Subscribe for Updates” box and hit the Subscribe button.  You should then receive an email with instructions to confirm your subscription.

BankPogo.com is now Bank Bryan Cave

In light of the merger of Powell Goldstein LLP and Bryan Cave LLP, effective January 1, 2009, BankPogo.com has a new name,  a new domain, and a new look.  The site is now called, simply, Bank Bryan Cave, and can now be reached at www.bankbryancave.com.  We think the new look will make it even easier for visitors to find the information they are looking for, while also increasing the speed of the site.

Despite these changes, the most important things are not changing.  The site is still being written by the same attorneys; and we still plan to focus on providing up-to-date information, written in plain English, on the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Programs, and other items affecting community bankers.

As we complete the transition to Bank Bryan Cave, there will potentially be technical hiccups, and you may encounter a broken link, or other problem.  If you notice a problem, or simply have a request, please send us an email.  If you’ve previously bookmarked the site or subscribed to receive updates by e-mail (see the “Subscribe” button on the right hand side of the page), then you don’t need to anything, as they will continue to work.
