TELL THE WORLD
We encourage you to highlight your status as an IBAT associate member. Download the Guidelines PDF and let your clients know you’re part of the IBAT family.
In 2021, IBAT introduced the IBAT Peer Review Provider program to its associate members, allowing them to take advantage of the IBAT due diligence process and add a vetted mark of distinction for products and services offered to IBAT-member community banks. Peer Review will help bankers identify business solutions by providing immediate feedback on the considered product or service from fellow bankers.

SUPPORT THE INDUSTRY
The IBAT Political Action Committee (PAC) is the only state PAC exclusively committed to representing the interests of community bankers. IBAT’s FedPAC was created to give community bankers a voice not only in Austin, but also in Washington, D.C. IBAT associate members are encouraged to do their part to support the industry by hosting PAC drives in their companies, or consider making an online donation.
Please note that all PAC contributions must be made by personal check or credit card.
