How to Participate

Since 2002, IBAT has honored our Associate Members with the IBAT Five*Star Award, recognizing those companies who routinely provide not just excellent service, but innovative solutions that help community banks grow faster, enhance profits, gain efficiency and SHINE through:

  • Integrity that meets the high standards banks have a right to expect from their trusted suppliers;
  • Never-ending commitment to the success of the community banking industry; and
