Council Mission
Council Mission

The Digital Banking Leadership Council is a membership organization for financial services executives who are transforming their institutions with emerging technologies. Our mission is to prepare our members for the upside of a rapidly evolving financial landscape, expose them to the people and products at the forefront of new financial technologies, and connect them with other industry leaders who share the same basic philosophy—new technologies bring new opportunities that cannot be ignored.

The Council is a joint effort between SourceMedia (publisher of American Banker, National Mortgage News, PaymentsSource, and Credit Union Journal) and Traction Technology Partners, which specializes in connecting enterprises to emerging technologies. We support our members and help guide the digital transformation of their organizations by showcasing people, products, companies and ideas that are fundamentally changing the flow of financial information and capital. Our peer-to-peer network is invaluable for inspiring different thinking, solving problems, and making connections to fellow digital pioneers in finance.
