The ICBA (Independent Community Bankers of America) has kicked off April as Community Banking Month by encouraging small business owners and consumers to bank locally with a community bank. I encourage you to do the same. Local community bank customers and shareholders are making a hometown investment they can be proud of because community banks put local deposits back to work right where it belongs — in the community.
Community Banking Month is a great time to encourage everyone around you to Go Local: Dine local. Shop local. Bank local. Local businesses employ, purchase from, and donate to the local economy. Let’s celebrate April and GO Local.
