The mission of The Institute is to shine a bright light on the good work performed by community banks… the difference they make in our communities the vital role you play in our business communities…and our economy as a whole.
I invite you to nominate your bank for the 2017 Extraordinary Banking™ Awards.
To be eligible to receive an award, the nominee bank must be a community or regional bank in the United States and its territories. Nominees must provide detailed financial information for at least the last three years.
All eligible Banky® Award winners will be considered for one of five Category Level Banky Awards and for the 2017 Extraordinary Bank of the Year Award—the top award for community banks. Previous Extraordinary Bank of the Year Award winners—The Institute of Extraordinary Banking™’s highest annual award—are inducted into the Extraordinary Banking Hall of Fame and are not again eligible for Bank of the Year Award, as it is a lifetime achievement. Previous Extraordinary Bank of the Year Award winners are eligible for Category Level Awards one year after their induction in the Hall of Fame. Previous Banky Award winners and Category Level Banky Award winners may resubmit for the 2017 awards.
