High ethical standards guide BancShares at every level and in every transaction. We expect our officers, employees and directors to perform their jobs in a competent ethical manner, abide by our codes of conduct and keep the trust and respect of everyone who does business with us. We maintain the following written codes of conduct ("Code of Ethics"): an Associates Code of Ethics applicable to all employees, a Financial Officers Code of Ethics, which sets forth additional standards of conduct for our senior financial officers, and a Directors Code of Ethics for our Board of Directors. Our current Financial Officers Code of Ethics is posted on our web site.
