MBA Membership Categories
There are three MBA membership categories: Active, Associate and Individual. The Bank Counsel Section was established under the Individual Membership category.
The MBA mission is "To be the principal advocate for the Missouri banking industry, passionately dedicated to providing products and services that educate and benefit our members."
The Missouri Bankers Association was founded in August of 1891 during a gathering of bankers in Lebanon. Active bank membership includes commercial banks, trust companies, savings banks, and savings and loan associations in Missouri.
In addition to providing legislative advocacy, the MBA offers timely education, compliance services, insurance and other products and services to help banks succeed in today's ever-changing marketplace.
