CNA Celebrates National Community Banking Month


Global business insurer joins ICBA in celebrating local banks

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- During the month of April, CNA will join the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) in celebration of National Community Banking Month and the vital role local banks play in the lives of their customers and communities. The month-long celebration will include: ICBA’s “I Love My Community Bank” campaign; special events in local banks and communities; a free, one-hour CNA webinar on emerging risks; and a $5,000 donation from the CNA Foundation to the Arbor Day Foundation’s Joplin, MO Recovery Fund which, for every dollar donated, will deliver a tree to this tornado-affected community.

“Like community banks, CNA remains committed to local neighborhoods where we live and work,” said Mark Tomlinson, assistant vice president – Community Banks Underwriting, CNA. “CNA’s donation to the recovery efforts in Joplin is just one way we are expressing appreciation to our community bank customers while recognizing the important roles they play within their respective communities.”

CNA will culminate National Community Banking Month by sponsoring a free one-hour webinar, “Emerging Risks for Community Banks,” on Thursday, April 26 at 3 p.m. ET. The webinar will highlight some of the prominent challenges and risks faced by senior management and the board of directors at these institutions. To register for this webinar, please visit
