Wanted: Small Business Stories!

Do you have any great stories about local, small businesses in your community? Are you a small business owner who has worked with a community bank? We are looking for success stories of small businesses that either thrived or were created during the recession with pivotal assistance from a local community bank.

We’d love to hear from you! Comment on this post or email Jessica Etter at jessica.etter@icba.org with your stories.


Fall in love with local!


Fall in love with local!

We guess it is technically the unofficial start to fall. There’s no reason to be sad summer is gone though. Hot chocolate, anything pumpkin or apple flavored and crisp nights are things we all have to look forward to. Fall is a perfect time to go local!

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! We hope you are planning on doing something local to enjoy the last few hours before summer unofficially comes to a close. Did anyone have fun events in their community?
