Washington, D.C. (July 20, 2022) — Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey issued the following statement regarding the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s renewal of the Mutual Savings Association Advisory Committee charter.
“ICBA and the nation’s community banks commend the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency for renewing the charter of its Mutual Savings Association Advisory Committee, which advises the agency on issues and opportunities facing mutual savings institutions.

Renewing the MSAAC charter will help the OCC support the important role of mutuals in serving local customers and communities.”
