    20th Annual Congressional Visit

    The financial services industry is facing unprecedented challenges, not the least of which are emanating from the legislative and regulatory bodies in Washington, D.C. Community banks need to stand together and send a consistent message to our elected representatives and regulators. IBAT represents you and you alone. Our message is neither diluted nor compromised. The time to fight for community banking’s future is now!

    It is incumbent upon each of us to be proactive advocates for community banking. Please join me and your community banking colleagues as we travel to Washington D.C., April 24-27. It has been especially gratifying over the past three years joining over 150 community bankers from Texas on a mission to tell and reinforce our story. Standing room only in Congressional offices with passionate community bankers makes a huge impact on our members of Congress.

    Our room block at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel expires on Friday, March 9, and we cannot guarantee availability or discounted rate beyond this date so don’t delay. Download the registration form and fax (512.322.9004) or scan and e-mail a copy (jholstien@ibat.org) TODAY! You’ll be out of the bank for only three days, and the ultimate benefits of personally delivering our message to Congress and the regulators far outweigh the cost of the trip. Our visit is scheduled in conjunction with the ICBA Spring Policy Summit, and you will be a part of timely briefings by Congressional leaders and top regulators.
