Women of Influence

Security Bank is proud to partner with Springfield Business Journal for the annual “Women of Influence” recognition program. Women of Influence honors local women for their contributions to the Springfield area community. Selected by their peers through submitted nominations, all have made important contributions to the community at large.

Nominations are not limited to the business community for this program. The area’s reputation as an exemplary place to live, work and raise a family is dependent upon the day-to-day hard work and long-range foresight of each and every one of us. These women are significant for their valuable contributions in making Springfield the outstanding community that it is.
