Since 1870, Availa Bank's mission has been to serve our communities. After carrying on this tradition of service for over 150 years, we felt it was finally time to update our mission statement, vision, and values to reflect all that we've accomplished and will continue to accomplish here at Availa Bank.

When you step into one of our branches, you'll see this in action with each and every one of our team members.

Mission Statement:

Empower our team to inspire and enable our clients and the communities we serve to achieve financial success. 

  • We are owners. Every day we take initiative and are accountable - with integrity, ethics, and courage - to make our bank better.
  • We believe our people make a difference. We build teams by hiring and developing the best talent. We recognize that individual differences and experiences strengthen our teams.
  • We know client relationships are key. Banking is more than just a series of transactions; it is a partnership with clients to find solutions that will assist with reaching financial success.
  • We focus on our communities. We are proud to invest in and contribute to the communities that we serve.
  • We strive to be better than yesterday. We seek out, embrace and get (un)comfortable in knowing that if we're not continuously changing, evolving, and improving client and employee experiences - we're falling behind.
  • Availa Bank will operate as one organization while recognizing that our markets and clients are diverse by providing solutions that meet their evolving needs.
  • Availa Bank will enhance our banking experience by engaging clients in their preferred setting through desired delivery channels to maintain life-long relationships.
  • Availa Bank will support the growth of our team through a commitment to training, mentoring, and career development.
  • Availa Bank will focus on team satisfaction and retention while recognizing and rewarding accomplishments that align with the bank's mission and values.
  • Availa Bank will strategically balance the objectives of steady growth and consistent earnings with sound risk management practices, thereby enhancing shareholder value
