A Community Bankers Services of Kansas (CBS) Initiative to Add Value for CBA Members

The mission of Community Bankers Services of Kansas (CBS) is to enhance the profitability of Kansas community banks by marketing quality products and services. CBS was formed in 2008 by the Community Bankers Association of Kansas (CBA) leadership, a group of dedicated Kansas community bankers who realized that providing CBA members with a competitive advantage through improved access to essential bank products and services was vital to serving its mission of fostering a viable community banking profession.

The CBS Board of Directors continually researches promising new programs. Each endorsed program must be available to all members regardless of size or geographical location, meet stringent quality standards and provide an exclusive member benefit.
