"PACB offers our membership opportunities to network and learn, but our reason for existence is to promote and protect a thriving community banking industry. While there may be many interpretations about why we are committed to this cause, I can assure you that the present leadership of the organization is motivated by the importance of community banking in the lives of the people of this great Commonwealth. For us, it is a quality issue. A thriving community bank means that hardworking men and women will have access to mortgages and small business capital."

- Kevin Shivers
