For more than a century, the New York Bankers Association (NYBA) has been at the vanguard of the financial services industry.  NYBA is comprised of the commercial banks and thrift institutions that engage in the banking business in New York State.  Our members have aggregate assets in excess of $10 trillion and more than 200,000 New York employees.


Since 1894, it has been the New York Bankers Association’s primary mission to be the State’s preeminent provider of legislative and regulatory services to a unified banking industry.  Over the years, the Association’s mission has grown to include educational programs, public relations, political action and member services geared to enhance the profitability and stature of New York ’s banking industry.  Today, the New York Bankers Association represents community, regional and money center commercial banks and thrift institutions in New York State with 200,000 employees and more than $10 trillion in aggregate assets.  Several years ago, NYBA merged with the Community Bankers Association of New York State, strengthening further the unified voice of New York ’s banking industry.
