Congressional Visit


About the Program

“Do we stand aside and let them craft banking legislation without us, or do we help drive the legislation to ensure there will always be a place for Community Banking? When we go to Washington DC next April, we all need to be there!”
John Jay, IBAT Chairman
IBAT will be holding its annual congressional visit in conjunction with ICBA’s 2015 Washington Policy Summit at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. The additional bankers will help enhance the community banker “critical mass” when converging on Capitol Hill.
Our congressional visit provides an excellent opportunity to obtain visibility with key decision-makers – in the Texas Congressional delegation and in the banking industry. Our bankers really notice the suppliers’ participation in these functions and remember it when it’s time to make a buying decision. If sponsorship isn’t in the budget, you should consider attending. Many vendors attend and get in valuable networking and “face” time with our bankers.
  • Room rate: $319 + applicable taxes
  • ICBA Washington Policy Summit Registration Fees: $350 per vendor / $300 per vendor spouse
