San Remo is Community Bank central
Hosted at Silverwater Resort, the three-day event is the annual meeting for Bendigo Bank’s Community Bank® network for branches located in the Victorian metropolitan region.
74 branches make up the Community Bank® network in Melbourne and its suburbs, plus another 72 in regional Victoria, including the branch on Marine Parade in San Remo.
San Remo Community Bank® Branch was opened in 2003, and has since expanded to Grantville and Cowes, in the process giving back $2.4 million in profits to local communities.
Community Bank® volunteer directors, branch managers and Bank staff from across Melbourne attended the conference to hear more about the work being done by their peers, new innovations in the network and ongoing opportunities.
An event like this epitomises the true and ongoing positive economic impact community banking has on tightknit communities just like San Remo.
