Connecting Bankers with Industry Experts, Resources and Each Other for 75 Years

Established in 1937, WIB has been helping community bank executive management and board members solve their challenges for 75 years. We inform, educate and connect you with the resources and services to achieve the highest standards of personal and organizational performance.

WIB has more independent bank members than any banking association in the West. Our almost 160 associate member firms serve community banks and provide resources to help you work smarter and sharpen your competitive edge.

How is WIB Different than a Traditional Banking Trade Association?

WIB and WIB Service Corporation focus on the success of independent bankers and helping to improve individual and bank performance. While governmental relations are of paramount importance to other banking associations, WIBís low membership fees allow banks to participate in the WIB network for learning, networking, and products/services information, while also support their state association for the purpose of lobbying and legislative issues.
