A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 21 February 2001 in relation to the proposal to establish Mukinbudin 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 Mukinbudin. As a result‚ the committee engaged an independent consultant to conduct a feasibility study.
The results of the feasibility study were presented to the committee at a meeting held on 31 July 2001 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of Mukinbudin Community Bank® Branch.
The branch opened for business on 18 March 2002.
