The Community Bankers Association of Georgia is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving community banks throughout Georgia for more than 40 years to enhance their profitability and growth.
Founded in 1969 by a group of Georgia community bankers, CBA was formed to protect the political interests of locally owned community banks.
Representing more than 300 community banks and nearly 250 associate member companies, CBA offers services in four distinct areas, which include, political affairs, education, products and services and networking.
CBA board members represent all 10 divisions of the state of Georgia; so all community banks are equally represented. Board members are named for a one-year term, which began Oct. 1, 2008.
During the course of the year, the directors will be involved in a number of items such as CBA’s fall group meetings, fall planning sessions, PAC/PR golf tournaments, fundraising, educational programs, convention planning and more.
