Magazine Advertising

The Tennessee Banker, the flagship publication of the Tennessee Bankers Association has been meeting the needs of Tennessee’s banking community since 1913. It is the only magazine published for the state’s banking industry.

It provides readers with pertinent information regarding the Tennessee banking climate and personal insight into the bankers who serve the Volunteer State. This information is important not only to the Tennessee banking community, but also to those who serve and work with Tennessee bankers, including TBA associate members that provide bankers with products and services; legislators who serve Tennessee and the banking community in the political arena; and regulators that exam and monitor Tennessee banks to make sure our industry remains compliant and sound. Throughout the year, the magazine is distributed to those attending the TBA Annual Meeting, education conferences, seminars, and workshops.

Written and edited solely for Tennessee bankers, The Tennessee Banker puts your advertising on the desk of interested buyers. Join the ranks of those in the know and advertise in The Tennessee Banker.
