What We Do
IBAT's Political Action Committees play an increasingly important role in providing campaign contributions to those candidates who understand and support our industry. Don't sit on the sidelines. Do your part to keep independent community banking strong in Texas.
You can do this by participating in:
Annual Auction - Help raise funds for the IBAT political action committee (PAC) by donating to the PAC Auction, held annually at the IBAT convention. The IBAT PAC is exclusively dedicated to promoting the community banking industry.
500 for the Future - By signing up for a monthly contribution to the IBAT Political Action Committee (PAC), you’re supporting the Leadership Division Board of Directors’ “500 for the Future” campaign – an ambitious goal to raise the annual giving to the PAC to $500,000 by 2020.
Dream Vacation - One winning entry will receive a $5,000 vacation or prize of equivalent value. The winning entry is drawn during IBAT's Annual Convention. Winners are solely responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning the prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.
Bank PAC Drives - IBAT asks all of its members to conduct a Bank PAC Drive each year. The IBAT Leadership Division is making its long-range goal to see that each IBAT member bank conducts a PAC drive with its directors, officers and employees.
Associate Member PAC Drives - Over the past several years, an increasing number of IBAT Associate Members have joined IBAT member banks in holding a PAC drive to support the government relations activities of the association.
