About CBA

The Voice of the Retail Banking Industry

The Consumer Bankers Association (CBA) is the only member-driven trade association focused exclusively on retail banking.   Whether buying a home, financing an education or launching a small business, since 1919, our members have partners with consumers to help them achieve the American dream.  

Our Corporate Members include the nation's largest retail banks, with 75% holding over $10 billion in assets.  Our Associate Members represent the premier providers of goods and services to banks. Member loyalty is reflected in our membership renewal rate, which consistently remains above 90 percent.

Our 13 standing committees, subcommittees and working groups include top executives from our member banks with expertise in each segment of retail banking.
