Elliott Miller, the CEO of Georgia Banking Co. in Atlanta, was elected to the board of directors of the Community Bankers Association of Georgia as the Division 5 chair, effective Oct. 1.

The CBA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping community banks throughout the state enhance their profitability and growth. Founded in 1969, the CBA is Georgia’s only advocate working solely for the interests of community banks and their customers. It represents 165 community banks and nearly 200 associate member companies.

Board members are selected for one-year terms from 10 divisions across the state.

Directors’ activities include responding to proposed rules and regulations, reviewing products and services that will benefit the industry and consumers, and weighing in on proposed legislation.

“Our association continues to thrive due to the efforts and guidance provided by the community bank leaders that comprise our board,” CBA President and CEO Rob Braswell said. “The varied experience each board member brings to the table is an invaluable asset to our association and serves to strengthen the community banking industry in Georgia.”
