Member Recognition and Awards

The Indiana Bankers Association works collectively to improve the business environment for banking to a far greater extent than any single institution could accomplish on its own. The success of this endeavor is dependent upon the support and participation of each member institution; the IBA and its members as a whole benefit when individual member participation is maximized. The IBA celebrates the support and commitment of members through various forms of recognition.

These membership recognition programs reward those members that have demonstrated continued support and participation in the Association.
