Pennsylvania’s communities are growing and thriving because community bankers care. In a time when friends, business-owners and neighbors are working harder than ever for success, you, the PACB member banks, have stepped up your community outreach and support to create a lasting impact in your community.
Whether it is through monetary donations, housing and economic development projects, volunteer time, sponsorships, or special seminars that educate and promote economic growth, it is the service and commitment of PA’s more than 14,000 community bankers that make your communities better places to live and work. Community bank involvement keeps hometowns strong, and your commitment to the future keeps people hopeful.
PACB holds banks that go above and beyond in their commitment to their community in the highest regard, and recognizes those members whose involvement in Pennsylvania’s towns surpasses traditional and expected business practices.
The PACB IMPACT AWARDS program is designed to honor PACB members who impacted their communities in meaningful ways throughout 2019. PACB believes that every day and every month of community bank service should be recognized.
Please take a moment to tell us about the countless wonderful things that your bank does to create a lasting IMPACT in your community. PACB will be accepting entries for all projects completed in 2019 with a final deadline for submission of January 31, 2020. Your bank is encouraged to submit all projects as part of the awards process. Final winners will be announced in March 2020 and the awards will be presented at the PACB Regional Meetings in March 2020.
Potential entries might include, but are certainly not limited to: community redevelopment, housing-related activities, support for families, local small business support, community entertainment, financial support or sponsorship of community events, and projects benefiting special interest groups such as seniors, children, physically/mentally challenged, etc.
For each entry, please complete the attached entry form, including a description of the activity in which your bank participated. Entries must also include photos and/or press coverage of the activity/event so that we can share the impact with community banking colleagues and the public. Remember, every bank is encouraged to provide multiple entries from their 2019 events, with a final deadline to return all materials to PACB by Friday, January 31, 2020.
Entries will be recognized based on their IMPACT on the community. Implementing Meaningful Projects & Activities to ensure your Community has a vibrant Tomorrow
