ABOUT THE TEXAS BANKERS ASSOCIATION
Founded in 1885, the Texas Bankers Association is a member-centric state organization based in Austin whose members represent the voice of the banking industry within the state and national halls of Austin and Washington, D.C.
In addition, our members engage in discussions impacting industry safety and soundness and economic issues affecting their customers.
TBA is the Leadership Organization & Principal Advocate For All Texas Banks
TBA represents 95 percent of banking institutions of all asset and deposit sizes. Our membership includes small and large institutions holding state and national charters, thrift charters and non-Texas charters with thousands of branches across our state.
Our member institutions pay local taxes on brick and mortar buildings and employ nearly 150,000 banking professionals. Members speak individually and through their representation on the association’s board of directors, four councils and 16 committees. More than 300 members volunteer each year to speak to TBA’s mission of one industry, one vision, one voice.
TBA publishes many resources on financial literacy available to bankers for career fairs and to educators for teaching money management in the classroom. TBA also provides scholarships to future bankers.

TBA learning never stops. We provide more than 75 seminars, 200 webinars and 20 specialized conferences and schools for over 8,000 Texas bankers each year. We prepare banking leaders for tomorrow through our Management Development Program.
