The Community Bankers Association of Oklahoma allows bankers to collectively accomplish many goals that would normally be unattainable with only the efforts of an individual banker or individual bank. CBAO fights proactively for legislation that would level the playing field for community banking, while at the same time maintaining a strong defense against costly and burdensome regulations. Since CBAO only allows community banks into membership, 100% of priority issues are on behalf of the community banking industry.

CBAO is Oklahoma’s only banking association with membership limited to Oklahoma community banks. Out of state mega-banks are not eligible for membership.

The Horizon Bankers, CBAO’s leadership development group provides banking leaders the tools and vision that will assure their bank continued strong passionate leadership in the years ahead.
