CBAI's mission is to provide high-quality educational programs in a timely manner to individuals with all levels of banking experience. We strongly believe that the knowledge gained through these programs can result in success for you, your employees, and your bank.

One-day seminars and conferences remain at the core of CBAI’s professional-development program. Designed for community bankers by community bankers, these seminars are led by experts in their fields; most have hands-on community banking experience and utilize a variety of approaches to keep learning at its highest.

CBAI provides an enhanced compliance program. The Community for Compliance Program uses the talents of the consultants from Young and Associates, Inc. to assist you in all your compliance training needs. 

CBAI also offers three-day institutes in consumer, residential real estate, and commercial lending, as well as the Certified Community Lender program and the popular Community Bankers School.

CBAI also works with individual bankers to bring experts to the most convenient location of all - their own community banks. Members also have access to training via the Internet. CBAI also offers nearly 100 webinars and on-demand training each year. These options provide the opportunity to educate the entire bank for one registration fee.
