Did you know that there are more than 5,700 community banks across the nation? But what distinguishes a community bank from other financial institutions? Simple: personal service, local credit decisions and ownership, and reinvestment in the community.
With 52,000 locations nationwide, community banks employ 765,000 Americans, hold more than $4.9 trillion in assets, $3.9 trillion in deposits, and $3.3 trillion in loans to consumers, small businesses and the agricultural community.
Please contact us on issues related to consumer and small business lending, federal regulatory issues, the economy, housing, tax policy, and other financial services topics. We will provide you with information from the community banker perspective by setting up interviews so you can speak with ICBA staff experts and community bankers from across the country.
