Sponsorship Opportunities

We offer a wide range of sponsorship opportunities for those looking to build stronger recognition with CBAO members and companies actively involved in the community banking industry.

We host several networking, educational, and social activities that provide the opportunity to directly present to and network with decision makers in the community banking industry. Download our 2018 Dates to Remember for full access to upcoming opportunities. 

The CBAO 2018 Convention planning is underway! We will be announcing our dates and location soon - stay tuned!


CBAO’s Board of Directors and Committees meet each quarter to discuss industry trends and the goals of CBAO. 

Sponsoring one of our meetings and/or dinners provides a low-key environment for you to engage with executive-level management from community banks across Ohio. Take advantage of up to 15-minutes speaking time, exclusive networking and the opportunity to hand out promo and marketing materials directly to decision makers.
