If you are looking for more information about CBA of Kansas and the benefits we present to members, this is the place for you.

Here are just a few of the great ways that our community bank association supports our members:

Opportunities for collaboration: When you become a member of our community bank association, you meet likeminded bankers that share in your same challenges and your same commitment to the role of a bank in the local community. Through networking events, conferences and social occasions, you’ll get ample opportunities to collaborate with people that have the same goals, vision and interest in your industry.

Access to resources: As a member of our community bank association, you keep up-to-date on the latest trends and challenges affecting your market. This includes our new Community Bankers for Compliance (CBC) program, designed to help you save costs and time as you establish an effective in-bank compliance program. You’ll receive In Touch, the magazine produced by CBA, as well as a regular e-newsletter, detailing legislative events, upcoming Association events and news from your colleagues. You’ll also have access to versatile, valuable webinars throughout the year – available anytime you are via our online platform.

You have a voice in state government: It’s never been more important for community banks to be represented in how policy impacts financial institutions. Through CBA’s PAC, you have the ability to impact the legislative process. The CBA PAC is the only state-level PAC working for the interests of community banks in the state. By combining your resources with those of community banks across the state, you are able to make a significant contribution to the conversation.
