The Official Publication of Community Bank Services

In 2023, we're transitioning the Carolina Banker to an annual format! Keep an eye out for the next edition of this banking-focused magazine in the summer.

Carolina Banker, the premiere banking magazine published by Community Bank Services, is the only publication in North Carolina that exclusively covers banks, savings institutions and trust companies as well as affiliated financial industries. Because North Carolina businesses and our financial institutions share common ground, Carolina Banker is an advertising vehicle that produces significant results.

Carolina Banker reaches financial institutions all throughout North Carolina, as well as their customers and their boards members – many of whom are community and business leaders. Regulatory agencies receive the magazine, in addition to the Association’s affiliate members consisting of attorneys; CPAs, mortgage bankers; consulting firms; investment bankers; insurance, securities, software and other finance-related companies. Carolina Banker is also distributed to every college and university in North Carolina, as well as the North Carolina General Assembly and members of Congress.
