Community National Bank & Trust was chartered in 1987, organized by a shareholder group that included Phil Eastep, Chairman, Dan Mildfelt, President and CEO, and Mike Mitchell a local Chanute businessman. Dan Mildfelt moved to Chanute from the Kansas City banking environment to become President and CEO of Community National Bank & Trust in 1991. The bank's emphasis on excellence in service, strong support of local needs, superior account and lending products, and a passion for community service are cornerstones in serving our growing customer base.
Community National Bank & Trust's management, directors and employees have exemplified leadership roles and dedication to the local schools, 4-H groups, scholarship funds, community cultural events, and other civic activities in each community that they service. The energies and financial resources from Community National Bank & Trust have oftentimes been the driving force in the success of many community activities.
Community National Bank & Trust offers a variety of accounts created to fit the individual needs of all customers, ranging from Regular Savings to ePower Checking and Cash Management. We encourage younger generations to learn to save by offering the Diggity Dog Club and Young Investors Club for children and young adults. This savings account enables children to learn the importance of saving for the future and setting deposit goals. Letters are sent to the kids informing them of special events and programs. The youth of today are our future adults.
Because we know how valuable time is to our customers, in addition to online banking for both individual and commercial customers, Community National Bank & Trust offers a variety of convenient banking products which include CALL Now Banking and 28 ATM locations in Southeast and South Central Kansas. Community National Bank & Trust offers a service that will produce your personal and business check orders in five (5) business days with outstanding quality and value, and several styles to choose from, all at a low cost.

Community National Bank & Trust's primary objective is to offer you the most innovative products and services, as well as the latest in banking technology. Our most important goal is giving you, our customer, the very best services in community banking; the way banking was meant to be.
