About the OBA
Oklahoma Banks: Helping People Catch Their Dreams!
For more than 100 years, Oklahoma banks have relied upon a strong and active statewide organization working to address their changing needs and challenges.
That organization - the Oklahoma Bankers Association - today serves 270 member banks. Based in Oklahoma City, the OBA assists its members with government relations, educational programs, legal and compliance services, communications, insurance products and numerous products and services.
The Association was created in June 1897 when 25 banks from Oklahoma Territory assembled to organize in pursuit of their common goals. It was 10 years before Oklahoma became a state. Of course, the OBA has undergone many changes over the past century, but it has stayed true to its basic mission of helping banks cope with their common concerns and needs.
The OBA works with banks to ensure they have the tools they need to support their communities. We provide fraud training programs to banks at no charge, we bring financial literacy programs to communities across the state and so much more.
The OBA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation formed solely for charitable, benevolent and educational purposes within the banking community, including the Robbery Reward Program and the OBA Summer Intern Program (pictured above). It is administered by the Oklahoma Bankers Association.
Since its formation, the Foundation has disbursed monies for rewards to assist in the apprehension and conviction of individuals committing crimes against banks or bank officers; scholarships to children, grandchildren, etc. of employees of member banks; and contributions to other organizations operating exclusively for charitable, benevolent and educational purposes.
