Since 1885, the Texas Bankers Association has been working to create a dynamic and profitable environment for Texas banks. This environment has provided a healthy atmosphere for the industry, as well as resources and services to benefit bank employees.
Like the bankers it represents, TBA is also concerned about helping bank customers of all ages throughout the state. We have established programs to reduce crime and fraud, to help youngsters achieve financial literacy and to help our senior citizens be safe in nursing homes.
Teaching personal finance to the next generation makes good business sense. That's why TBA has partnered with the American Bankers Association to promote financial literacy. Two programs that help youth in our communities learn about saving and credit issues are Teach Children to Save Day and Get Smart About Credit Day.
TBA is also interested in helping banks fight crime. To help apprehend bank robbers, the Texas Bankers Foundation, the charitable arm of TBA, offers robbery rewards in conjunction with the FBI.
Senior Housing Crime Prevention, a TBA endorsed partner, offers a senior crime stoppers program for nursing home residents.
TBA is also your one-stop source for information about the Texas banking industry, including banking-related legislation and regulation. Banking facts & figures are available on a variety of topics, and additional links are provided for Web sites that offer financial literacy information, crime prevention and banking information.
