A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 5 October 1999 in relation to the proposal to establish Boorowa Community Bank® Branch and a committee was formed to evaluate the proposal.
A preliminary public meeting was held to discuss the Community Bank® concept and the steps required to establish a Community Bank® branch of Bendigo Bank at Boorowa. As a result‚ the committee appointed an independent consultant to undertake a feasibility study in relation to the proposal.
The results of the study were presented to the committee at a meeting held on 15 May 2000 and it was unanimously voted to proceed.
The branch officially opened for business on 12 May 2001.
