Our History & Mission
Who We Are
Often, banks refer to themselves as local banks, or community banks. Indeed here at bankcda we use those terms, but we don’t use them lightly. We make this point because our headquarters are here in North Idaho…not just our branches. In fact, bankcda was formed after forty founders from CDA joined together to establish a locally owned bank focused on small businesses and individuals. In May 2001, we received our charter from the state of Idaho and opened our doors to serve you.
We focus on elevating the region by helping to build businesses as well as help build the lives of those who live here. Maybe that sounds too grandiose to some, but it doesn’t to us. Because we live it everyday. We know our customers, and we’re truly interested in what they have to say, and what daily challenges they face. The way we see it, there is a reason you came to our bank and we look forward to finding out what it is.
bankcda is innovative, technologically advanced, we employ only experts, and we deliver the same level of service and types of products that the big banks do. This is why we’re such a unique institution. Genuinely friendly, caring people who are actually brilliant at what they do – that’s who we are.
