In September 1889, a group of 47 Nebraska bankers traveled to Kansas City to attend a convention of the American Bankers Association. While there, the Nebraskans decided to form a state association to represent Nebraska’s fledgling banking industry. Four months later, the Nebraska Bankers Association became a reality with the organization’s first convention held on Jan. 22, 1890. A total of 232 banks were represented at this organizing convention, and the Nebraska Bankers Association came into being.
Now, more than a century later, Nebraska’s banking industry continues to be united under the banner of the statewide trade association that was formed on that winter day in 1889 by those forward-looking pioneer bankers.
