CEO Jeff Berghuis warmly welcomes our Montana customers to the "Stronger than Ever" Citizens Alliance Bank. We are pleased to announce that the merger of First Valley Bank into Citizens Alliance Bank was successfully completed as of close of business April 25, 2014. While the name of the bank changed, our Montana customers will experience the same exceptional level of service to which they have been accustomed.

Building on the solid foundation of Citizens Alliance Bank, we will continue to provide the community banking qualities customers seek - local empowered decisions and personalized service delivered by the same knowledgeable banking professionals who know and understand you and your business. We strengthen local economies and are committed to our customers, employees, and the communities we serve. Our integrated products and financial resources rival those of a much larger bank but are delivered with a small town personal touch.

Helpful Travel Tips from Citizens Alliance Bank

-          Make two photocopies of all your travel documents (Passport, Itinerary, Airline Tickets, Driver’s License, Credit Cards, Hotel Info, etc.) in case of emergency or if your documents are lost or stolen. Leave one copy with a friend or relative at home. It is always a great idea to let at least one person know exactly where you will be staying and how to contact you case of an emergency.

 -          Before you leave, notify your bank, credit card company or other financial institutions that you are traveling. Let us know the states or countries you will be visiting, dates of travel and how to contact you while you’re away.
