The Dream - A Full-Service Bank Focused on the Community
     Bank of Blue Valley began as an idea of what a community bank focused on the success of local residents and businesses should be. Bob Regnier, President, Chairman and CEO of Bank of Blue Valley, wanted to create a community bank where convenience, community partnerships and personal relationships were principal tenets supported by the best banking services available.
In 1989, Bob founded Bank of Blue Valley as a locally-owned, locally-managed community bank ready to assist residents and businesses in Johnson County and the Kansas City area with their banking and lending needs. Through building lasting relationships based on quality customer service, Bank of Blue Valley has been able to expand to the current five banking locations today in Overland Park, Olathe, Shawnee, Leawood and Lenexa. These strategically placed locations, along with extended banking hours (91.5 hours per week, seven days per week) and the latest banking innovations have made Bank of Blue Valley a respected and trusted name in the community and regional banking.

MAACA Volunteer Story:
     Li Xing Story
My volunteer work with MAACA has greatly contributed to growth my financial career. Being in MAACA is a way for me to stay connected to the culture in an environment that stresses innovation, support and collaboration. MACCA is full of so many smart, creative, driven folks who are constantly doing interesting things. It consistently renews my energy and interest in Asian Culture.
Through my association with MAACA, I have made great contacts with people, gained a different view into my work, formed a relationship with each family, and developed important professional skills." This experience has made me appreciate all the hard work involved in running the nonprofit Organization ¨CMAACA. I've been more proud of the Asian Festival day which was authorized by local government. Asian Festival day shows that MAACA and its Volunteer group truly care about their community and are willing to invest both time and money to help make a difference.

Asian Immigrant Community
Over the past decade, more immigrants have come to the United States from Asia than from any other region in the world, making Asians the fastest growing immigrant population in the United States. These immigrants bring their diverse cultures, language skills, and different economic and demographic traits from various Asian countries and the Indian subcontinent.
Demographics of the Asian immigrant population
Today¡¯s Asian immigrant community in the United States is diverse: Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese immigrants are the top six nationalities of Asian immigrants and account for 85 percent of the total Asian immigrant population. These immigrants have contributed greatly to the overall growth of the U.S. Asian population. Since 2008, Asian immigrants have represented approximately 40 percent of the U.S. foreign-born population compared to 27 percent in 2005. The U.S. Asian population is also majority-foreign born: 66 percent of Asian Americans were born in another country, compared with only 37 percent of Latinos.
