Two leading banking associations in the west have announced their intentions to merge, with the proposal to be presented to their memberships later this month.

The California Bankers Association (CBA) will take over the Western Independent Bankers (WIB) and the combined organization will become known as the Western Bankers Association, according to the proposal. The two original names will be retained under the new brand: CBA for advocacy activities and WIB for conferences and education.

As proposed, the combined groups will be headed by Simone Lagomarsino, president and CEO of CBA currently. The current head of WIB, Michael Delucchi, will direct training and education for banks throughout 13 western states and U.S. territories.

The merged organizations will serve 250 members.

Webinar: Real-Time Payments in the U.S. Market

Time/Date: June 16, 2021 2:00 p.m. ET

The U.S. has come a long way in its journey to real-time payments, with TCH and Zelle in market and FedNow just around the corner. COVID-19 has accelerated that demand to move to real-time. Yet many financial institutions remain unconvinced of the need to move, with less than 3% of financial institutions signed up today.

In this Banking Exchange hosted webinar Celent’s Gareth Lodge, Senior Analyst, Global Payments, and Alacriti’s Mark Ranta, Payments Practice Lead, discuss the findings in the Celent research report, Real-Time Payments in the US Market: Speeding Up or Slowing Down? A Call to Arms.
