President’s Message

Ted Gerber, President

What was your New Year’s Resolution?  Was it “I’m going to lose 15 pounds” or “I’m going to start using that dusty treadmill in the basement.”  Perhaps it was more like “I’m going to spend more time with my family” or “I’m going to be a better spouse.”  Mine were to eat better and get in better shape.  I hope yours are coming along better than mine.

At Community Bank, we have resolutions just like you do.  For 2017, we pledged to:                                                                                                    

  • Give you easier, cheaper and more convenient access to your money through the MoneyPass ATM Network.
  • Install a new dynamic, easy to use Internet Banking platform.
  • Provide a simpler, more convenient loan process via a new online loan application.

I am happy to report that we are making progress on these goals.  During the month of February, we became a part of the MoneyPass surcharge-free ATM Network.  MoneyPass already has 25,000 ATM’s coast-to-coast, and the network continues to grow.  And since each and every MoneyPass ATM is surcharge free, you won’t have to worry about paying a fee to access your money.

We also are making progress on our other two new services.  We are currently in the testing and training stage for our new loan software, and will be looking to roll out the new online application later this spring.  In addition, we will be implementing our new internet banking platform later in the summer.

Now, if I could only stop eating potato chips…
