CRA Collaborative

Our peer group brings together the best minds in banking
to collaborate on CRA strategy and best practices.






Bank3 is extremely excited about the formation of the CRA Collaborative peer group. We hope to learn about the best practices for an Intermediate Small Bank as it relates to lending in low or low to moderate income areas.
Edward J. Gentry, Executive Vice President & Chief Credit Officer – Bank3

When colleagues work together to share their expertise and knowledge to learn a new skill, concept, or process, peer learning is one of the strongest ways to accelerate development. Learning sticks when we’re collaborating with others: discussing things back and forth, explaining ourselves, actively listening to others, and refining our ideas.

The CRA Collaborative  fosters a team dynamic where everyone’s ideas and opinions are respected, encouraging all to speak up and share their best practices and insights regarding current CRA issues. Consider this space an environment of mutual respect, as everyone is seen as an equal contributor to the process, and where we can solve problems and overcome challenges together.

Moderated by our CRA Liaison, Steffani Jenkins, you’ll gain different perspectives on CRA subject matter and exchange and build upon each other’s ideas while staying focused on navigating the changes coming with the modernization of CRA rules and regulations.
