MBA Manuals, Publications and Forms
Looking for the MBA Registry of Michigan Financial Institutions ("Blue Book")? We have found the need for the printed registry has steadily declined in recent years. As such, the MBA has decided not to publich a 2017 Blue Book. A list of our member banks with links to web sites can be found here under the Membership tab. We will also continue to evaluate the need for an alternative printed publication in the future.
If you found the Blue Book to be a beneficial marketing tool, we encourage you to take advantage of two other advertising opportunities available year-round:
- Print advertising in the mbaBanking magazine, which is mailed to more than 5,000 bankers, legislators and elected officials and business organizations.
- Online Advertising in the mbaBanking bulletin, an e-communication delivered monthly to more than 6,000 contacts.
The mbaBanking magazine and bulletin are the official communications – the voice – of the Michigan Bankers Association and its member banks. Click here for the 2017 MBA Media Kit.
Compensation and Benefits Survey
MBA Service Corporation conducts this survey annually to provide data on the pay practices and benefit offerings of community and commercial banks in Michigan.
- Provides information and guidance for management in making compensation decisions
- Is very effective when used in conjunction with other information, such as local labor market conditions, the bank’s desired level of competitiveness with the market, the bank’s recruiting experiences, etc...
- Is the most comprehensive survey of its kind in Michigan and is exclusive to the financial industry
This survey provides information on nearly a hundred specific job titles that are grouped by regions and by bank asset size. Over seventy percent of Michigan FDIC insured institutions provide data to this survey.

Outside Directors Survey
This Outside Directors Survey offers key information pertaining to the frequency of annual board and committee meetings, fees paid for various levels of Board services, and benefits available to the outside Directors. Statistics are differentiated by region, bank’s asset size, and number of full-time employees. The mandatory retirement age, year-end bonus, and any absences allowed without change to fees paid are also contained within the survey.

The MBA Fifth Edition Record Retention and Destruction Manual-Released in October 2011
