Tennessee Bankers

Committees

The heart and soul of the Tennessee Bankers Association is the volunteer banker serving on a committee. Through their involvement, these volunteers represent the entire banking community and assure that your association meets your needs. Without the expertise and enthusiasm of committee members, your TBA could not function.

Each year, more than 300 bankers serve on various TBA committees, which meet during the year to focus on the issues facing our industry and determine how to address these issues through TBA educational programs and the services the association offers. If you have specialized banking expertise, enthusiasm, and creative ideas, we would like to hear from you. For more information on how to participate in a programming or policy committee, contact Monique jenkins at mjenkins@TNBankers.org or download a sign-up sheet.
