The Independent Community Bankers of America is seeking nominations for the 2017 ICBA National Community Bank Service Awards. The annual awards recognize community banks that help sustain and improve their communities through service and volunteer efforts. Any community bank can be nominated, or banks may nominate themselves. Nominations are accepted through June 2.
The National Community Bank Service Awards, presented by the ICBA and sponsored by FIS, recognize community banks providing outstanding, hands-on volunteer community service. The awards recognize all types of efforts, from community development to financial literacy, and everything in between.
The ABA Foundation Community Commitment Awards of the American Bankers Association recognizes and promotes the many valuable ways banks of all sizes and charters contribute to economic growth, community development and overall wellbeing. The 2017 award entry period is now open, and entry forms are available online. All submissions must be received by June 30.
The winners will be announced in September, and awards are to be presented in October during the ABA Annual Convention in Chicago. Also available is a “Banks in Their Communities” map, which showcases all program entries by state and category.
One of the most powerful benefits that the Indiana Bankers Association offers is the annual Financial Institution Compensation Survey, in partnership with Crowe Horwath LLP. Only with maximum participation is the full potential of the survey realized.
Participating in the 2017 survey is the first step to accessing valuable bank compensation benchmarks and trends across 263 positions, as well as information on benefits, incentives, director compensation, as well as succession planning and human resource practices. It will also allow you to benchmark your bank's compensation practices against those of other similar banks. The results can be obtained for Indiana banks only or for the Midwest region (IN, IL, MI, OH).
In addition, by participating in the survey, you will receive access to exclusive thought leadership and a substantial discount off the retail price of the survey report. The survey closes May 31. Click to start.
