The Oklahoma Bankers Association’s primary role is to represent the interests of its member banks on public policy matters. This section aims not only to keep you informed about legislative matters affecting your bank, but to encourage greater banker involvement in the Association’s political action efforts.

The Regulatory Feedback Initiative gives bankers a chance to comment anonymously about the bank’s examination process. If you have had an exam in the last year and haven’t completed a “Post Exam Survey” please direct your staff to click here. We need to know what happened – the good AND the bad. And then let your staff know this is something they should do after every completed exam.

OBA updates Oklahoma banking economic impact brochure

The OBA communications department recently updated its “Economic Impact Brochure” that breaks out how much Oklahoma-chartered banks mean to the economy of the state.

The brochure, first created by the OBA communications department in 2013, was one of the first of its kind by a state or national bankers association, and has been used in OBA visits with government officials and media to help illustrate the positives of banking in our state. The brochure has also served as a talking-points piece for bank customers to demonstrate in numbers what banks do, how they do it and how important the banking industry is to Oklahoma.

Click here to download the brochure, or contact the OBA for a hard copy. If you have any questions about this brochure, or its use, feel free to contact Jeremy Cowen in the OBA communications department.
