You Have the Power!

We hope that you are enjoying our website’s new roster management functionality (please note we have updated our Administrator's Guide to reflect the new system changes). According to our data it looks like many of you are now managing your employee rosters on your own without having to contact a Community Banker University team member for assistance. While giving you the ability to quickly and efficiently manage your employee roster was our end-goal, we hope that you will always feel welcome to call us and share your thoughts, input, suggestions, and successes.

Community Banker University strives to provide you with quality products and services and your ongoing feedback is greatly appreciated. Are there specific resources, online training courses, webinars, or live events that could help you better perform your duties and advance your career? We want to hear from you! What are your needs? What are your wants? What is working and what isn’t? Always know that we are only a phone call or email away.
