Iowa Independent Bankers, now known as Community Bankers of Iowa, has been the voice of independent banking in Iowa since its inception in 1972. The principal objective of the organization was and is to represent the independent banker in state legislative affairs. However, increasing complexities in banking and competition from an expanding array of industries led to the establishment of additional goals for the organization but always focusing exclusively on the needs of independent community bankers. Through the years, IIB/CBI has grown in strength, respect, and capacity because of the unceasing efforts of scores of independent bankers who, without remuneration, have been willing to give their time and energy for the common good.
