Community BancPac

It's Time to Support Community Banking Through Community BancPac

What is Community BancPac?

Community BancPac is a non-partisan statewide political action committee of the Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI) that seeks to elect both challengers and incumbent state lawmakers who support community banking and strive to maintain safety and soundness standards for the banking profession. 

Who Can Contribute?

YOU! Also, corporate contributions can be made by state banks and bank holding companies (regardless of the charters of their bank subsidiaries). Although nationally-chartered institutions are prohibited from making corporate contributions, individuals associated with national banks may personally contribute. Officers, directors, staff, and friends may make personal contributions at any time.

How Are Donations Distributed?

The CBAI Governmental Relations staff, with the advice of CBAI leaders and Community BancPac officers, decide how to allocate the funds to best serve the community banking profession based on their knowledge of the candidates. Community BancPac also invites contributing CBAI members to recommend candidates for financial support. Community BancPac often coordinates with CBAI members to attend the fund raising events of local candidates to build grassroots relationships.
