April 7th through the 13th is the 29th anniversary of Community Banking Week in Illinois. This year’s theme is Sharing Your Dreams.
According to Independent Community Bankers of America, community banks make up 99% of all banks and are the only physical banking presence in one in five US counties.
Community banks hold more than $4.9 trillion in assets, $3.9 trillion in deposits, and $3.4 trillion in loans to consumers, small businesses and the agricultural community. Community banks channel deposits into the local economy having a positive impact on the neighborhoods they serve, which support job creation, foster innovation, and fuel customers’ dreams.
The ethos behind community banks, such as Warren-Boynton State Bank, is one customer at a time. We believe in reinvestment in the community because it allows local businesses to prosper and helps families not only put food on the dinner table but to fulfill their dreams.
In addition to our focus on community, we are able to quickly integrate new technology to support our customers’ activity as their businesses grow. We are able to offer our clients a host of online tools from online bill pay to mobile banking to My Money Manager to person-to-person payments. We have the ability to adapt according to emerging trends. We also have a strong focus on security with our Secure Checking product.
We always enjoy organizing our Customer Appreciation Day, which remains well attended. It gives us the opportunity to spend time with our customers in a more casual setting as getting to know them is extremely important to us.
