Best of Community Banking Award

2019 Best of Community Banking Awards

This is our 28th year of celebrating the outstanding accomplishments of IBAT members with the 2019 Best of Community Banking Awards competition. This program recognizes the vital role your bank plays in your community.

The Best of Community Banking competition is an opportunity to showcase and honor the best-of-the-best efforts of IBAT members in five categories: community service, financial literacy, marketing, bank culture and architectural design. Entries are free with a maximum of two per bank. 

Take this opportunity to tell the story of your bank’s critical involvement both in the community and in your bank by sharing with us the exceptional projects you’ve taken on throughout the past year.

This awards program is open to all IBAT members in good standing. Entries must be received at the IBAT office by Friday, June 21, 2019.  All gold, silver and bronze award entries will be on display during the IBAT Annual Convention with gold award winners recognized at the Best of Community Banking Awards Luncheon on Monday, September 23, 2019 at Moody Gardens Hotel in Galveston.
