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 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 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.
Please view the list of Endorsed Providers below, and call us whenever we can be of help, whatever the reason. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
