In addition, Community Financial Services Bank is committed to the practice of diversity and inclusion within its procurement and business practices. We welcome the opportunity to build relationships with a diverse selection of suppliers and vendors, including Veteran, minority, and women-owned businesses. Our Vendor Management Policy states that we will not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, age, national origin, physical or mental disability, or Veteran’s status of ownership as it pertains to selection of vendors or suppliers. Starting in 2018, CFSB began collect information about our suppliers and vendors to determine a clearer view of how diverse our suppliers are. This was accomplished through a survey of current vendors and suppliers, and will be collected during the onboarding of new vendors and suppliers.
