Bankers Legislative Day

March 5-6, 2013

IBAT's Community Banking Day at the Capitol is scheduled for March 5-6, 2013.

The IBAT Community Banking Day at the Capitol is the only event specifically dedicated to making the voice of Texas Community Bankers heard. IBAT is active in the political process through lobbying and PAC contributions to Texas candidates, but nothing is more important to the political process than constituents meeting with their lawmakers to express their concerns. Please register here and plan to be a part of this important event.
