Builders of Banking
Centennial banks have been in business 100 years or longer, setting the foundation for the proud heritage of banking in the Hoosier state. These banks endured the Great Depression, wars, droughts, economic downtowns and other challenges, yet continue to thrive and serve their communities.
More than 225 bankers have served through the years as presidents and chairmen of the IBA, including leaders from merged organizations – the Indiana League of Savings Institutions and the Community Bankers Association of Indiana. These professionals have given countless hours to voluntary leadership.
This club recognizes those bankers who have served 40+ years in banking in Indiana. More than 400 current members of the club are invited each year to the Chairman’s Banquet at the IBA Annual Convention. Additionally, club members may receive Hoosier Banker magazine to stay informed about the IBA. Read more.
The building of banking is an ongoing process, and the IBA reaches out to emerging bank leaders through the Future Leadership Division to offer opportunities in education, networking and leadership development. The FLD advisory board president also serves on the IBA board, giving voice to FLD members. Read more.
