Happy Holidays From the IBA!

As Challenging Year Ends, Hope Is on the Horizon

With only two weeks left in what has been a tumultuous 2020, there is hope for better days in 2021.

With the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine having already begun, a return to normalcy — or at least a new normal — is on the horizon. We are proud of the way Iowa banks delivered essential services for their customers and their communities while under duress. Following are just a few of the ways Iowa banks went above and beyond in 2020.

  • By working late hours to deliver 60,000 Paycheck Protection loans to main street businesses, farmers and local hospitals, Iowa banks helped secure hundreds of thousands of jobs.
  • By participating in food drives and donating money to local food banks, Iowa banks helped the communities they serve battle food insecurity.
  • By providing personal protective equipment to local health care workers, Iowa banks helped protect those working on the front lines of the pandemic.
  • By finding unique ways to support local businesses — purchasing gift cards to give away to staff and community members, ordering takeout for staff and more — Iowa banks helped the small businesses in their communities survive during the government lockdown.
  • By providing hardship assistance and loan accommodations to customers, Iowa banks helped those feeling the largest financial impact of the pandemic.

The staff and leadership at the IBA would like to wish all members a safe and joyous holiday season. We are blessed to represent people who care so deeply about the communities they serve, and we have seen that commitment in more ways than we ever anticipated in 2020. Thank you for all your efforts this year and every year.
