AAAB Background

Nearly 30 years ago, a small group of like-minded individuals, working for different banks and financial organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, came together to be, what is now, the Association of Asian American Bankers. It was founded with the goals of: promoting the exchange of ideas and information between its members; fostering business cooperation between its members, banks and financial organizations; creating a coordinated effort to give back to the communities which its members serve; and promoting friendship. AAAB continues to have these same goals today.

AAAB conducts professional trainings, lectures, and social events for its members; and its network represents organizations spanning from regional and national banks to law firms and consulting groups.

We invite you to join AAAB today.
