Become a Bank Member

Since 1903, the Arizona Bankers Association has been working to create a dynamic and profitable environment for Arizona banks. This environment has provided a healthy atmosphere for the industry, as well as resources and services to benefit bank employees.

We would like to extend an invitation to you to join the hundreds of bankers who know the value of their AzBA membership far exceeds the cost of their dues. With the same dedication and commitment, you use to serve your customers and communities, the AzBA pledges to help you succeed in today’s challenging financial services environment.

As new laws and regulations change the face of the banking industry and dependence on technology increases, bankers find themselves in uncharted territory. Your membership in the AzBA is vital in helping your bank stay competitive.

We are especially proud of our educational offerings, which help you and your employees become better bankers. We have hundreds of webinar and online classes for our banking professionals to choose from and stand ready to continue meeting your needs.

In addition, as the principal advocate for all Arizona financial institutions, the Arizona Bankers Association works to positively shape the future of the banking industry. At both the state and national levels, AzBA has successfully drafted and passed legislation beneficial to Arizona financial institutions and has been equally successful in defeating scores of bills that would have been devastating to your institution and the industry as a whole.

Finally, we make sure your bank receives timely information through our uniquely relevant publications, stays cutting-edge with our products and services and is protected by a variety of insurance products.

To join, please contact us.
