Community Commitment Award Application Deadline Extended to Friday July 13
The application deadline for the 2018 ABA Foundation Community Commitment Awards has been extended to Friday, July 13. The awards recognize and promote the many ways banks contribute to economic growth, community development and overall well-being. Open to banks of all asset sizes and charters, the awards celebrate financial institutions that have demonstrated noteworthy corporate social responsibility. Bankers can submit applications in one or all seven categories: affordable housing, community and economic development, financial education, protecting older Americans, volunteerism, and the George Bailey Award, which recognizes a non-CEO employee who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to community service. The awards will be judged by a panel of experts in each field. Winners will be honored in a ceremony during ABA's Annual Convention in New York on Oct. 21-23.
