Congratulations BOCB

Texas community banks continue to blow us away with your Best of Community Banking (BOCB) Award submissions—and this year was no exception. Our bank members should be commended for the outstanding work they do both in their banks and in their communities. Special congratulations to Woodforest National Bank for its “Helping Rebuild After Hurricane Harvey” community service submission that received the top spot with the 2018 Best of Show Award.
