Changes in the banking industry

Alan Jordan, president of Regions Bank in Yazoo City, (left) spoke to the Yazoo City Rotary Club this week about changes in the banking industry. Jordan said that the entire industry is changing in response to the growing number of electronic transactions. He said that many banks are increasingly using machines for transactions, and many bank employees are being trained to handle a number of duties. Jordan said that Yazoo County bank customers still us cash transactions more than more urban areas so some changes seen in larger cities may not be seen in communities like Yazoo for some time.
