As ICBM's magazine, Impact reaches community bank presidents, CEOs, senior executives, board members, and market presidents in the state of Minnesota. 

What makes Impact unique?

We've moved away from just "preaching to the choir" with our stories. Instead, we find examples of Minnesota community banks making a big difference for the state. Then, we provide members three different kinds of value:

Marketing Benefits

The featured member receives marketing content that would otherwise cost them thousands to create on their own. The stories showcase just how much of an IMPACT they have in their area. 

PR Impact in Their Local Area

We pitch their story to press in their city and/or region. Previous featured banks have gotten their story in front of more than 7,000 people in 66 cities and towns in their area. Again, a PR firm would charge the member thousands for just the PR generated by our feature; they get it as a benefit of membership. 

Industry Branding with Lawmakers  

Featured members become examples that ICBM shares with lawmakers to educate them about community banks' hard work, investment, and commitment to Minnesota communities.
