Conversion Weekend Information
The conversion of First National Bank of McHenry is scheduled for the weekend of July 19-July 21, 2019. This is the weekend "the change" will occur and First National Bank of McHenry will adopt the Blackhawk Bank identity, logo, signage, products, systems, etc. and we become one community-minded bank.
As we convert First National Bank of McHenry into Blackhawk Bank, please note changes to your business account(s). These changes can be found starting on page 11 of Your Guide to Bank Accounts and Services.
You may continue to use your existing supply of First National Bank checks until you have depleted your check stock. Should you feel the need to place an order for checks between now and Conversion Weekend, we encourage you to order as small a quantity as possible.
Debit Mastercard and ATM Cards
You may activate and begin using your new Blackhawk Bank Business Debit Mastercard at or around 8:00 a.m. on Monday, July 22nd.
Business Online Banking and Bill Pay
At 3:00 p.m. on July 19th, First National Bank's online banking access will be "View Only" mode. After this time, your First National Bank online banking is anticipated to reflect your balance as it was at 3:00 p.m. on July 19th.

If you are currently utilizing First National Bank's Cash Management Services with ACH, Wires, or Remote Deposit Capture services online, a Cash Management expert will reach out to you to sign new agreements and go over a new application and enrollment form.
You can look forward to one-on-one training on Blackhawk Bank's Cash Management System to help you streamline the banking process for your business. You will also receive demo Cash Management Online Banking logins, so you can practice using the system before your account is converted.
If your business utilizes a Merchant Services Solution for credit card processing, this solution will not change. If you are looking to start a Merchant Services program, Blackhawk Bank has a variety of options to choose from.
