The IBC is Colorado's exclusive voice for Colorado's community banks. The IBC represents banks of all sizes, charter types, and is dedicated to solely representing the interests of the community banking industry and the communities and customers they serve.

Community banks improve our standard of living by funding small businesses and use local dollars to assist families to purchase homes and other goods, finance college and build financial security. Community bankers are our neighbors, friends, and a vital component of every community.

IBC believes in fair competition for all financial institutions, maintaining the separation of banking and commerce, and a balanced financial systems to prevent the concentration of economic and financial services resources.
