Community Banking Month


The Community Bankers Association of Illinois’ (CBAI) 31st annual Illinois Community Banking Week is Sunday, April 4 to Saturday, April 10, 2021, which coincides with National Community Banking Month.

The purpose of Community Banking Week is to highlight the tradition of local hometown community banking. Community banks play a role in nurturing and growing communities to help make a positive impact for everyone. The theme for this year’s Illinois Community Banking Week is Growing Stronger Communities.

Community banks play a vital role in the success of individuals and businesses.

Community banks are deeply rooted in their communities while also offering similar products and services as larger institutions. Community banks provide technology and community presence. Services such as online banking, person-to-person payments, mobile banking apps, and financial management tools are available through local community banks in the same way they are national chains.

Community banks serve the needs of local families, businesses, and farmers. Larger banks may take deposits in one state and lend in others. Community banks channel loans to the neighborhoods where their customers live and work, helping to keep local communities vibrant and growing.

Whether supporting community food banks, helping families with their loan payments, or extending Paycheck Protection Program loans to small businesses, community banks like Warren-Boynton State Bank, are here to help in a time of crisis.

Community banks see people, not just numbers.
