The PACB INSPIRE Awards are designed to recognize the incredible and varied ways that community banks breathe life into the neighborhoods they serve. Award winners are determined to be those organizations which INSPIRE others in the community to undertake a leadership role in making their local communities a better place.
PACB is proud of the powerful role that our community bankers play to support local businesses, schools, charitable groups and houses of worship. Our community bankers work hard every day to help their local entrepreneurs and community leaders build vibrant communities where families want to live, work and play. PACB is delighted to also honor and recognize our outstanding associate members and preferred providers – as well as career-tenure bank employees, who will receive PACB's Lifetime Achievement Award!
PACB is producing a Program Booklet for the evening's event! Now, your institution or business can honor and recognize your winners, your team's efforts or your community in either a half-page or full-page ad. Both color and black-and-white ads are available for the same price: $100 for a half-page or $200 for a full-page, with the highly visible back cover available for premium placement at $300. For details and to reserve your ad space, contact Mary Lehane at email@example.com. The program will list past INSPIRE winners as well as the evening's program. Please note deadline for ads is no later than Tuesday, May 31.
