Low, Flat-rate Membership Fee
We understand the challenges of running a community bank, which is why we put every effort into providing the highest quality services at an affordable cost. All members pay the same low, flat-rate regardless of bank size. The annual membership fee for the Bluegrass Community Bankers Association is only $500. As a non-profit organization, these fees are structured to offset event costs with a break-even result.
