About Community BancService Corporation, Inc.

A subsidiary of Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI), CBSC aggregates the “clout” of CBAI member banks to negotiate lower costs and provide improved access to essential bank products and services. CBSC recommends products and services that assist banks with income-production, expense reduction, consulting, marketing, compliance, equipment, insurance, lending, A/L management and payments. Before the CBSC board of directors awards any program an exclusive partnership, it is subjected to a rigorous due diligence review that includes extensive testing by members, occasionally by independent experts, and negotiation of special member-only benefits. This process typically takes up to six months.

Today, CBAI members use an average of more than five CBSC preferred providers. Last year, members collectively saved nearly $ 1.5 million in purchasing discounts from CBSC-recommended firms. Contact CBSC today and share in the savings.
