than 100 bankers and industry partners will travel to our nation's Capitol for
meetings with members of the Texas Congressional delegation during IBAT's 21st Annual Congressional Visit, April 23-26.
Will you join them?
With IBAT's 20th Annual Congressional Visit now in the record books, next year's event has already been scheduled. Mark your calendars and save the date to join IBAT in Washington, D.C. on April 23-25, 2013. As IBAT continues to advocate exclusively for community banking, showing up en masse sends a strong message to lawmakers that community bankers are committed to being a part of the process.
Over 130 Texas community bankers and industry partners concluded two days of Hill visits and discussions with all of the federal regulatory agencies last week as part of a nationwide fly-in sponsored by IBAT and ICBA. IBAT bankers visited some 30 members of the Texas Congressional delegation in efforts to promote issues unique to community banks including a host of bills that would provide targeted regulatory relief and to work against efforts by credit unions to expand their member business lending (MBL) authority.
More than 130 bankers and industry partners will be in DC next week for visits with members of the Texas Congressional delegation. The visits will coincide with a nationwide fly-in (April 24-26) of community bankers across the country attending the Independent Community Bankers of America Washington Policy Summit. In addition, meetings are planned with senior officials of each of the prudential regulatory agencies and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
