The South Jersey Bankers Association (SJBA) is a 40+ year old regional bankers association. The association was formed to provide a forum for bankers to share ideas and address issues concerning the financial services industry. SJBA currently maintains 19 member banks, 18 vendors and 400+ individual members. Well known high profile speakers join us at dinner meetings, where they present their ideas and perspectives. The dinner meetings are also excellent opportunities for bankers and others concerned with the banking industry to network and share ideas. The South Jersey Bankers Association also conducts educational seminars to enhance the member knowledge about specific banking services and strategies.


To remain open to different ideas and connected with our members, community and each other.
