The Consumer Bankers Association (CBA) is a member-driven organization. CBA's 13 standing committees and several working groups include the top executives from our member banks with expertise in each segment of retail banking. Our committees guide our mission and serve as the foundation for every CBA program from advocacy efforts to our annual conference, CBA LIVE. In this rapidly changing environment, CBA stays up to speed on the top retail banking issues by updating the priorities of its committees and creating subcommittees and working groups as particular issues arise.

The Committee is dedicated to furthering fair and responsible lending throughout the marketplace, and acting as an educational resource for dealers and lawmakers.
