David Caswell, president and COO of Century Bank of Georgia in Cartersville was elected to the Board of Directors of the Community Bankers Association of Georgia as Division Seven Chair. Nominations for the 2013-2014 CBA Board of Directors were announced and approved at CBA’s 45th Annual Meeting & Trade Show, held September 11 to 15, 2013 at the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort.

The CBA is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving community banks throughout Georgia for over 40 years to enhance their profitability and growth. Founded in 1969 by a group of Georgia community bankers, the CBA is the state's only advocate working solely for the interests of community banks and their customers. The CBA was formed to protect the political interests of locally-owned community banks and today represents nearly 200 community banks and over 200 associate member companies. The association offers services in four distinct areas, which include political affairs, education, products & services and networking.
Board members are selected from 10 divisions across the state of Georgia, ensuring all Georgia community banks are equally represented. Board members are elected to a one-year term which begins Oct. 1 of each year. During the course of the year, directors will be involved in a number of items on behalf of the CBA membership, such as responding to proposed rules and regulations from the various regulatory agencies, reviewing numerous products and services which will benefit the community banking industry as well as consumers, and weighing in on proposed legislation.
“Our membership has elected some of Georgia’s most qualified banking executives to serve on the CBA board,” Rob Braswell, president and CEO of the Community Bankers Association of Georgia, said in the press release. “Their experience, insight and leadership will be invaluable to our Association in the coming year. We appreciate their commitment to the community banking industry and this great state.”
