Tell Your Bank's Story Through the 2012 Community Service Award Program

To recognize outstanding community service, the Community Service Awards were presented to members at the 2012 Annual Conference.

NJBankers wants to give your bank the opportunity to get the recognition it deserves for its community service initiatives.  The Community Service Award program highlights the significant impact New Jersey banks have on their local communities.  Without your help, we cannot tell your story.

We know that you are a vital part of the communities you serve.  We get your press releases and see your community initiatives in the media all the time.  But your participation in this program solidifies all you do in the communities you serve by highlighting your activities and giving you the opportunity to show it off. 

Here is what we will do with this information:

  • Legislators – During the 2013 ABA Government Relations Summit (April 15 - 17, 2013), we will once again present this compilation of community service activities to each member of our Congressional delegation.  Additionally, it will be provided to key state legislators because we have found some legislators underestimate the banking industry’s contribution to the communities they serve.
  • Recognition – Participants will be recognized by their peers at the 2013 Annual Conference at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida (May 15 - 19, 2013). 
  • Media – We will send the compilation to New Jersey media to prompt interest in your bank’s programs.

The Public Relations & Marketing Committee will again ask members of the New Jersey Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America to judge the entries.  Awards are selected by deposit size.

We ask that your bank submit 2012 community service highlights in the following format: 

  • 1-3 pages, with the option of including embedded photos in a pdf document with your bank’s logo;
  • Include a brief profile of your bank which could include asset size, number of branches, year founded, number of counties served, and number of employees;
  • List your top community service initiatives from calendar year 2012, with brief descriptions;
  • If possible, please identify projects by legislative districts since legislators are particularly interested in hearing about activities in their districts;
  • Include photo captions if you use photos.

Each NJBankers member CEO received a copy of the book in June.  Don’t you want to join your fellow NJBankers members who tell their story through this program?  The number of program participants grows with each year so join us! 

Please pass this information to the appropriate individual at your institution.

Thank you for your anticipated participation!
