To show excellence in associations is important to improve visibility and to increase our network`s footprint. We are generating industry`s insights in cooperative banking. Proximity to the customers, responsibility for the region and partnership with small and mid-sized enterprises are the leading principles of CIBP members. The European Association Award may help us in our collective mission to empower customers, members and regional economies.
Andrea Karner, Secretary General, CIBP


In our chaotic economic circumstances in Europe, membership of an association, in particular a European association, is increasingly seen as a luxury rather than a necessity. Against this backdrop, associations need to raise their game, making themselves an indispensable partner in their member communities. I think the awards initiative provides another good opportunity to make best practice visible and benchmark excellence now, all of which should contribute to promoting the association excellence we need to aspire to in future, in our fast evolving market.
