ABA Banking Journal - July 2013 - (Page 40)

AMERICAN BANKERS ASSOCIATION At Your Service know with CHRISTINE WALIKA ABA EVP, Community Bank Group ABABJ: What’s the role of the Community Bankers Council (CBC)? Christine Walika: The CBC is made up of 100 community bank CEOs from almost every state in the nation. They meet twice a year to examine regulatory and legislative issues, and products and services to keep community banks competitive in the marketplace. This is a very active, engaged, and diverse group of banker volunteers. ABABJ: What do the council members bring to the table? CW: The CBC represents a cross-section of the industry and that provides a cross-section of ideas. We’re led by our chairman, Ken Burgess, who is chairman of FirstCapital Bank of Texas, and our vice-chairman, Rheo Brouillard, who is president and CEO of SI Financial Group in Connecticut. Our CBC members also serve on many of ABA’s committees and working groups. When it comes to community banking, the council is really our eyes and ears, and through their feedback, we can make sure that ABA is meeting the needs of our community bank members. Questions?

CAPITAL MARKETS New Additions to ABA NASDAQ Community Bank Index ABA has added 12 banks to the ABA NASDAQ Community Bank Index (ABAQ), effective June 3, 2013. The index includes 388 community banks, with a market capitalization of $145 billion. Launched in December 2003, the ABAQ is the most broadly representative stock index for community banks, and remains an important tool for giving banks more visibility with analysts and investors. The index includes all banks and savings associations or their holding companies listed on the NASDAQ, with the exception of any of the 50 largest bank and thrift charters based on asset size; banks classified as having an “international specialization;” and banks classified as having a “credit card specialization.” Asset size and business classifications are based on the most recently available FDIC data. The complete list of banks can be accessed on the ABAQ’s Web page at aba.com. n PRODUCTS & SERVICES ABA Insurance Services Offers Property and Casualty Insurance ABA Insurance Services has announced the addition of property and casualty insurance to complement its product suite of D&O and bond coverage.
