Full and Associate Members pay an annual subscription, to be determined in accordance with the constitution of the GBEStB. All members are also be expected, where appropriate, to commit expertise and resources to supporting the work of the GBEStB.
Membership subscriptions for 2018 have been set at $10,000 for Full Membership and $5,000 for Associate organisations.
To develop, implement and embed global banking education standards as widely as possible we need the support of banking institutes, regulators, banking educators, banks and other interested parties from around the world who believe, as we do, that a culture of customer and client-focused, ethical professionalism in the banking industry can be supported via high-quality professional education.
If you would like to join the 25 founding institutes who have developed these the GBEStB’s initial plans, please contact us at: email@example.com.
