Compliance to Craftmanship - Meet Angela Woodard

CBA Today eNewsletter,

Meet Angela Woodard, CRCM, CACTS, a multi-talented banker at Planters First Bank, Hawkinsville. Angela is used to wearing multiple hats, working as AVP/Compliance Support Officer as well as BSA/Compliance/CRA/OFAC officer. Beyond the bank, she wears the hat of a talented craftsman, creating beautiful and unique pens.


Angela and many of her pen creations are featured in the latest issue of Georgia Communities First magazine. When asked about any similarities between her hobby and banking, Angela explained, “Working in the banking industry requires attention to detail. When you are dealing with people’s money and trying to provide information for the regulators you need to be diligent in all that you do. Making pens is very precise, I could fill up a 5-gallon bucket with my “non-precise” turnings. But like banking, I learn something new every day!”
