Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Camden R. Fine, president and CEO of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), the nations voice for community banks, was named a top lobbyist by The Hill on its annual list of the most influential advocacy leaders. Fine has been named to the list every year since 2008. The story, released by The Hill today, says it is Fines job to make sure the new regulations dont end up damaging smaller community lenders.

As a former community banker, and one who now has the privilege of advocating for the nations more than 7,000 community banks, Im deeply honored to be named by The Hill as a top lobbyist on behalf of the community banking industry, Fine said. ICBA has a top-notch staff and we never let up when it comes to advocating for our members. ICBA makes sure Washington policymakers know that community banks are a vital part of Americas economic system and that they work overtime to serve their customers and communities. My job is to continue to spread that message and ensure that community banks have a bright future. Its a mission I couldnt be more proud of and am passionate about fulfilling.

Fine joined ICBA in May 2003 and was named president and CEO in 2004. A native Missourian, Fine previously chartered and organized Midwest Independent Bank in Jefferson City, Mo., and served as its president and CEO for nearly 20 years. In addition, he owned Mainstreet Bank of Ashland, Mo., a $ 45 million-asset community bank in central Missouri. An active member of ICBA prior to becoming the associations president and CEO, Fine served on the ICBA Bancard board, several ICBA standing committees and the associations board of directors.

Fine is currently leading the charge on a host of issues critical to the community banking sector including advocating for a community bank exemption from the proposed Basel III regulatory capital standards and for an extension of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.s (FDIC) Transaction Account Guarantee (TAG) program, while also working to ensure that community banks are not hindered by burdensome mortgage rules and regulations.
