The mission of the Montana Independent Bankers Association is to promote competition among financial institutions so that premier financial services are made available to our customers. It is our view that a large number of competitors, operating under an “equal playing field,” is preferable to concentration of money and capital.
This will be accomplished by:
- Having aggressive lobbying activities at a state and national level.
- Supporting the dual banking system.
- Protecting the rights of states to determine the type of financial institution structure best suited to their varying economics.
- Providing cost effective services to our membership.
Our actions will be guided by the highest in ethical standards and those espoused by the Independent Community Bankers of America.
