Washington, D.C. (August 2014) The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) recognizes Astra Bank of Abilene, KS for reaching an important milestone as an ICBA member. This year marks the community bank’s 55th year as a member of ICBA, the only national trade association dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of the nation’s nearly 6,500 community banks.
As a community banker, one of our primary goals is providing our customers (and community) a financially stable and secure place for their banking needs. With every loan, deposit account and online banking login, we are earning the trust our customers have placed in Astra Bank.
Astra Bank invites you to a town meeting to meet Rusty Lovett with Astra Investment Services. Rusty will be providing a brief overview of his services with a Q&A session to follow. Rusty brings over 20 years of experience to the financial services industry, and is looking forward to answering your financial questions.
We want to assure you that we are aware of the reported incident at Target impacting some debit cardholders who used their cards at Target stores between November 27 and December 15, 2013.
It's that time of year again and we're excited to announce the Christmas Open House schedule for 2013. Be sure to check the schedule below and stop by your favorite office for some holiday cheer! Also, don't forget your canned goods to help benefit families in need this holiday season.
As the weather turns cold and the holidays approach, we realize that many of our neighbors are struggling to make ends meet. During the winter supplies can dwindle at food banks, making it hard to feed those that need it most. That's why Astra Bank is stepping up to give a helping hand this season and we need your help.
Customer service and personalized attention are the hallmarks of Astra Bank’s steadfast quality over the years. We scout great talent to bring the best people on board our team, so they in turn can offer the best service to customers. We really do care about our people and our customers. The bank has a great vision and directors/managers are setting the stage for success and willing to pay for talent.
Change is inevitable, change is good, change fuels innovation. But if there was “one thing you would never want to change at Astra Bank, no matter how many technological and industry-specific changes take place, what would it be?”
Community banking at Astra Bank takes on a far deeper meaning beyond just serving the local community with banking products and services. We take our motto of “deep roots, deeper commitment” very seriously. It would be wonderful if we could centralize our community outreach efforts and manage everything in one place, but we recognize that this is neither feasible nor advantageous to the communities we serve. And that is why we place the onus of community involvement on our different branches and their staff. Location managers are empowered to scout suitable opportunities within their local community where the branch and its staff team can reach out, lend a hand and make a difference.
Richard Campbell, our Chairman was talking to us about the significant changes he has witnessed in his tenure with the bank since the early 70’s. He strongly believes that the best thing that happened to the banking industry and to Astra Bank of course, is the technology that came along, and it only seems to be getting more advanced every day. Technology really has “leveled the playing field” and made life a whole lot more pleasant for the bank and its customers. It has allowed the little banks to take advantage of the changing environment and get caught up with the big banks.
