April 2020 Association Update

PACB Office Remains Closed, Work Continues

PACB staff continues to work remotely in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We hope to be back in the office soon, but we will be guided by the recommendations of the the Governor, PA Department of Health, and other relevant public health officials in making that decision. 

Despite working remotely, the PACB team remains committed to carrying out ongoing responsibilities. We continue to be accessible by email or by our office phone system. Although we are not physically present in the PACB office, we are committed to being readily available to our members and allies.


Coronavirus Resources for Community Bankers and Consumers

PACB is helping support the community banking industry and its consumers navigate the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic by offering information and resources from state and federal regulatory agencies, health organizations, and industry allies. Regulatory agencies have encouraged financial institutions to work with customers impacted by the coronavirus. Customers experiencing difficulties beyond their control should work directly with their financial institutions.

Located at pacb.org/coronavirus, this webpage is closely monitored and updated regularly as more information becomes available.
