NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 21, 2010) -  Diligent Board Member Services, the world's leading board portal provider, announced that eight banks in Q3 have selected Diligent Boardbooks to provide a bank board portal. Diligent board portals allow banks to distribute board and committee material, enhance the efficiency of the corporate secretary's office and streamline communication to their directors.

Diligent now serves more than 70 banks. "We are seeing strong growth from the banking segment as regional and community banks move quickly to contain and reduce expenses, and at the same time enhance corporate governance," said Marc Daniels, executive vice president of licensing.

In Q3 2010 Diligent added eight new banking clients including; Bank of Whitman, Carver BancorpCommunity & Southern Bancorp, Cortland Bank, First National Community Bank, iBERIABANK Corporation, National Consumer Cooperative Bank and The Palmetto Bank.

Community & Southern Bank of Atlanta, Georgia called on Diligent as their growing bank wanted to streamline the process of getting information to its board. Community & Southern is the fourth-largest Georgia-based bank with total assets of approximately $2.8 billion and 40 branches in 18 counties throughout Georgia. 

Steve Stone, Community & Southern's general counsel, stated, "We selected Diligent as a means of reducing the time and expense involved in the preparation and dissemination of materials to our Board of Directors and Committees. Diligent provides our board with a level of convenience and security that traditional paper board books simply can't compete with. The fact that two of our board members already use Diligent's product on other boards on which they serve made the decision to use Boardbooks even easier."
