ICBA has released their Community Banking Month toolkit in preparation for April Community Banking Month.  

ICBA members can now access customizable resources and a new animated video to celebrate the month and community banking.

The toolkit includes a custom news release and op-ed, sample social media posts and images, an infographic and a list of useful websites. Additionally, the new “Community Banking: Know the Difference” video explains the impact community banks have on local economies and the importance of banking locally.

WBA and the BOLT Section (Building Our Leaders of Tomorrow) encourages you and your bank to participate in Community Banking Month by sharing your commitment to your communities through events, fundraisers and financial support.  Consider posting about your activities on social media using #BankLocally and #BankLocalWI. 

For April 2018, the WBA BOLT Section will be launching a campaign in conjunction with April Community Banking Month to highlight the collective efforts of community banks in Wisconsin and the overall impacts on the all of the communities served.  Watch for more information coming this summer.
