Minority Bank Advisory Council

Leading from the Front

The purpose of ICBA’s Minority Bank Advisory Council (the Council) is to help shape ICBA advocacy and education solutions that benefit minority banks and the communities they serve.

ICBA Council Together Crop

The Minority Bank Advisory Council was established in 2008 and is made up of a diverse group of bankers from across the country. The Council provides a forum for these volunteer bankers to discuss and review issues effecting minority banks.

The Council works closely with ICBA on a myriad of issues by providing the unique minority bank perspective. They advocate for targeted and flexible regulatory relief and help drive the formation of ICBA’s legislative policy by provide detailed context on how proposed legislation will impact their customers.

The Council also maintains ongoing relationships with bank regulators, members of Congress and serves as a central resource of information. Their experience, expertise, and knowledge is essential to helping underserved communities.
