ACBB reported net income (unaudited) of $3,951,103 for the period ending 12/31/16, yielding an ROAA of .67%. This represents a 13.7% increase over the prior year and was attributed to strong core earnings as well as some onetime gains. The latter included early termination revenues from BITS as well as some OREO gains. In addition, as ACBB is part of a community bank consortium for health benefits, we benefited from significantly lower costs resulting from fewer claims. Read More

AVP, Relationship Manager
The year of 2016 marked many changes to the ACH Network. By far, one of the biggest occurred in September with the implementation of Phase 1 of Same Day ACH, referred to as “SDA”. As all financial institutions rolled out the red carpet to this major rule change, early data suggests strong use of this new tool to move payments faster. This available data so far has supported NACHA’s predictions on the effects of SDA in the financial industry.
ACBB’s Marketing Initiatives By Emilie Longenecker
Marketing/Product Development Specialist
ACBB has implemented a number of rebranding and marketing projects. These projects were fueled by staying on top of the current marketing trends and becoming more accessible to our community banks.

In 2013 we hosted seven free webinars for banks to see the quality of material we presented. Then in 2014 we began charging just $99 a month for a shareholder bank to participate in our monthly services. Read More
