FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April Is ICBA Community Banking Month

Community Bank Service and Financial Literacy Highlighted

Washington, D.C. (April 1, 2011)-April is Community Banking Month, and the nearly 5,000 members of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) are celebrating the vital role that community banks serve in the economic, civic and cultural life of their communities in cities and towns throughout America.

"Community banks work tirelessly each and everyday to serve the needs of their customers and reinvest in their Main Street communities," said Sal Marranca, ICBA chairman and president and CEO of Cattaraugus County Bank, Little Valley, N.Y. "Our nation's nearly 7,000 community banks provide the vital resources their customers need, which in turn, make their communities a better place to work and live. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and ICBA Community Banking Month gives ICBA's community bank members a chance to thank our customers and the communities we proudly serve."

Thousands of community banks recognize ICBA Community Banking Month in a variety of ways. Some partner with local charities to host special events, others promote economic development initiatives. Many community banks traditionally mark the month by highlighting their community service or financial education programs.

ICBA member community banks employ nearly 300,000 people in more than 20,000 locations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and two U.S. territories. Of the 7,000 community banks in America, nearly 5,000 are ICBA members.
