Community Banking in the News

The Independent Community Bankers of America creates and promotes an environment where community banks flourish.

With more than 50,000 locations nationwide, community banks constitute 99 percent of all banks, employ nearly 750,000 Americans and are the only physical banking presence in one in three U.S. counties.

Holding more than $5 trillion in assets, nearly $4 trillion in deposits, and more than $3.4 trillion in loans to consumers, small businesses and the agricultural community, community banks channel local deposits into the Main Streets and neighborhoods they serve, spurring job creation, fostering innovation and fueling their customers’ dreams in communities throughout America.

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.
