To the Editor:

We take strong exception to the opening paragraph of the article "State Trade Groups Rocked as Dissenters Go Own Way" that appeared in the Sept. 21 issue of the American Banker. In over 100 years of service to the industry, the New York State Bankers Association, like the other 49 state associations around the country, is not now and never has been a "glorified social club for like-minded businessmen."
