CBAO’s Convention has truly become “the banking event” for community bankers in Oklahoma!
One Mission: Community Banks!
The Community Bankers Association of Oklahoma allows bankers to collectively accomplish many goals that would normally be unattainable with only the efforts of an individual banker or individual bank!
We also proactively fight for legislation that would level the playing field for community banking, while at the same time maintaining a strong defense against costly and burdensome regulations.
Since CBAO only allows community banks into membership, 100% of priority issues are on behalf of the community banking industry.
Keeping Community Banking Cutting Edge
The future of Oklahoma community banking depends on a new generation of bankers and community bank supporters—progressive, energetic, community-minded, and well-informed.
That's why we created the CBAO Horizon Bankers — to keep members on the cutting edge of community banking through Leadership Training, Network Opportunities, and Quality Education.
The CBAO Horizon Bankers is designed for career-aspiring community bankers. We are passionate about cultivating, educating, and empower the future of community banks.
