About Us

In 2018, two recognized, trusted associations, the California Bankers Association (CBA) and Western Independent Bankers (WIB) merged to form a strong new foundation, the Western Bankers Association (WBA).

With more than 200 years of combined experience serving banks, the WBA is one of the largest banking trade associations and regional educational organizations in the United States. 

With a mission to educate and connect bankers to help them achieve the highest standards of personal and organizational excellence, the WBA offers dynamic conferences, training seminars, more than 250 webinars and enhanced education for member banks. 

CBA, the California state and federal advocacy division, is the advocate of the California banking industry for needed legislative, regulatory and legal changes.

WBA also provides its members with preferred pricing for products and services that can both improve operations and save money through its Strategic Partner program.
