The North Carolina Bankers Association was established in 1897. The Community Bankers Association of North Carolina merged with the NCBA on January 1, 1997. The resulting organization continues as the North Carolina Bankers Association operating under its original charter. The trade group offers legislative liaison in the North Carolina General Assembly and the US Congress on behalf of its membership. It provides educational and training programs, media relations, insurance benefits programs, the Carolina Banker magazine, regulatory and compliance assistance, and other services to its member financial institutions. It also operates, as a wholly owned subsidiary, the Community Investment Corporation of the Carolinas which provides long-term, low-cost financing for low to moderate income multi-family developments in the state.

In addition to its member financial institutions, a wide variety of other businesses have joined the NCBA as affiliate members. If you are interested in more information about the NCBA or the membership opportunities available, please call us at 800-662-7044 or send an e-mail to Grace Sampson to request an affiliate membership packet.
