Oregon Bankers Association - Independent Community Banks of Oregon

OBA Committees

The direct involvement of bankers in OBA committees is essential to our success as an association. Currently, over 400 Oregon bankers volunteer their time and energy to serve on our standing committees. We rely on these members to help us establish priorities for:

  • Federal & State Government Relations
  • Educational Programs
  • Products & Services
  • Consumer Education & Community Outreach

In addition to providing a forum for discussion on current issues within the financial services industry, many committees focus on self-education through guest speakers, video presentations and roundtable discussions. The committee experience is designed to benefit the individual participants, the institutions they represent, and the industry as a whole.

Committee terms of service are two-years. Any employee of an OBA member bank is eligible to participate as an OBA committee member, as long as he or she has approval from the bank's President/CEO. For more information on this great opportunity to get involved, e-mail Jennifer Schubert, OBA member relations associate, or call her at (503) 581-3522.
