Membership in the Bankers’ Association offers numerous advantages to public limited banks. The Association informs its members on a continual basis in information bulletins and its newsletter ‘factum’ on current developments in the banking sector. In addition, the events platform ‘forum’ provides an opportunity for an intensive exchange of experience and information amongst members.
Public limited banks, building societies belonging to the Austrian Bankers’ Trade Association, private limited banks and bankers having a permanent establishment in the territory of the Republic of Austria may become full members of the Association. Members of groups affiliated with the Austrian Bankers’ Trade Association, representative offices of foreign banks, credit institutions having a permanent office in a Member State of the EU and conducting banking business in Austria under the freedom to provide services, pension funds in which full members have participating interests as well as other Austrian credit undertakings may join the Association as associate members.
New members are admitted by decision of the Managing Board upon written application.
