CBA Corporate Membership
Benefits of CBA Corporate Membership
CBA stands apart from other bank trade associations by focusing exclusively on retail banking, allowing deep coverage of all retail-related issues (such as the creation and progress of the CFPB). CBA has provided lobbying/advocacy, educational and networking opportunities to the industry for over 90 years.
CBA's Government Relations department is the voice of its membership in the nation's capital on retail banking issues--both legislative and regulatory. We have strong relationships with the Federal Reserve Board, the OCC, and FDIC, and now the CFPB. Because of our focus and expertise on retail banking products and services, CBA is well positioned to be the primary industry resource on the CFPB.
CBA is involved with actively lobbying on Capitol Hill on behalf of the industry, and we certainly don’t do this alone. The CBA government relations team regularly recruits representatives from our member banks to join us on the Hill to provide real-life, on-the-ground insight into the possible effects of pending legislation or regulation.
In relation to our lobbying efforts, CBA’s Day at the Bank program brings legislators into bank branches in their districts or states to experience firsthand the complexities involved in running a bank.
The backbone of CBA is our committee structure. CBA has 10 primary committees focusing on: Automobile Finance, the CFPB, Community Reinvestment, Deposits & Payments, Default Management, Education Funding, Digital Channels, Fair Lending, Home Equity and Small Business Banking. These committees include heads of the respective departments from CBA member banks. They meet monthly by conference call and twice a year in person to hear from key regulators. CBA members regularly report CBA committee participation is the greatest value they receive from their membership.
