Associate Membership

The Bylaws provide for an Associate Member category, which is available to companies and organizations engaged in a financial business or having an interest in the banking industry sufficiently compatible with the philosophy and objectives of the Association and its members.

Associate Membership helps to keep your firm abreast of rapidly changing conditions in the financial services industry in Connecticut, provides timely information on legislative, regulatory and legal developments and offers access to a variety of Association functions and programs. In addition to the continuous exposure to member banks, Associate Members automatically receive:

  • Invitations to educational programs, seminars, meetings and other functions of a pertinent nature, including the Annual Meeting and annual tradeshow BankWorld.
  • Enrollment options in the Association's premiere educational school, the Connecticut School of Finance & Management.
  • Copies of Association Legislative Bulletins, which are distributed throughout the legislative session. In addition to commentary on events, the Bulletins contain an in depth pending legislation report.
  • One copy of selected Association Bulletins, which normally include all general information bulletins and meeting/seminar notices. Bulletins of a confidential nature may be excepted.
  • Complimentary copies of our monthly newsletter Highlights and Calendar and our CBA Quarterly magazine.

Bylaws Limitations
Associate members do not hold voting rights, but are allowed to attend and participate in meetings of the Association's various committees.  Associate Members are not allowed to attend special membership meetings of the Association.
