We look forward to working with our dedicated board members throughout the year.”

The Leadership Division of CBA was created in 1980 to educate and inform future bank leaders on the current issues in the banking industry and to prepare them for further leadership roles in their institutions.  The Leadership Division works closely with many schools and organizations throughout communities to educate the public on community banking, careers in banking and other financial topics. One of the main principles of the Leadership Division is to promote economic education by teaching students about banking, saving, spending, interest, credit and other related issues.  Each year, the Leadership Division conducts several fundraisers that benefit Children’s Healthcare, as well as the CBA PAC Funds.
