Bank Membership

Western Independent Bankers (WIB), a Division of Western Bankers Association (WBA), provides a bridge of opportunity for community banks across the Western United States, promoting a continuous network of shared information and establishing itself as a leader in peer-focused education.

WIB advances a landscape of learning throughout its members’ careers and across all key areas of banking. Whether experienced in-person, in-bank, or online, WIB strives to meet the budget needs and learning preferences of each institution. Annually, WIB offers more than 300 educational programs tailored to help community bankers maintain a strong competitive edge.

Banks Outside of California

For more than 80 years, WIB has served the educational and professional development needs for banks across the 13 Western States. Now as a division of the newly formed WBA, our commitment to our members’ professional development remains steadfast. In fact, 2018 delivers more programs and educational opportunities than ever; this includes the addition of five conferences historically produced by the California Bankers Association (CBA). Banks outside California are urged to support their local state banking associations and utilize their WIB membership to elevate their bank and staff to the next level through our premier peer-focused education.

Banks Inside of California

As a result of the recent merger with the California Bankers Association (CBA), WIB members can now enjoy the professional development benefits of membership while taking advantage of the lobbying and advocacy benefits of the CBA.

Banks that are already members of the CBA (now Western Bankers Association, will now receive membership rates for all WIB educational programming.
