Webinar: Earn CRA Credit By Combatting Elder Abuse 
The nationally-acclaimed Senior Crimestoppers program is the only initiative, public or private, which is having a measurable impact on the epidemic of crime and abuse in America’s low and moderate income nursing homes and Veterans homes. Funding for this program comes exclusively from the banking industry and can serve as an easy way for your bank to earn CRA loan, investment and service test credit while protecting society’s most vulnerable – our elderly. ICBA members are invited to attend a one-hour webinar detailing the benefits of the program. If you have any problems registering, call Lori Millar at 877-232-0859 for help.
