The Missouri Bankers Association (MBA) is a trade association of Missouri financial institutions providing a wealth of information to keep members abreast of top priorities, including information on key issues and updates on recent legislative and regulatory matters. The mission of the MBA is to advance a positive environment for Missouri banking, and the industry overall, and foster safe, profitable and successful banks that promote strong communities and a vibrant Missouri economy.
Founded in 1891, the MBA includes 247 charters and more than 1800 branches, $215 billion of assets and $204 billion of deposits. The MBA is governed by a Board of Directors representing 86% of banking institutions covering a wide range of bank asset and deposit sizes from across the state.
The MBA is anchored in the state’s capital Jefferson City, Missouri positioning the association perfectly to work with state elected officials and regulators as an advocate on behalf of its members in support of the banking industry. Historic Jefferson City is located by the majestic Missouri River with tree-lined bluffs and architectural treasures such as the Capitol and Supreme Court buildings, many museums, beautiful parks and a charming downtown community.
