What happens in Washington, D.C. and Austin has a far-reaching impact on your industry, your livelihood and your community. As PAC Drive Month is well under way, we challenge all bank directors, officers and employees to participate in this vital fundraising effort. Please note the resources, such as a sample letter to employees, found in the “Useful Links” sidebar.
While your IBAT staff works tirelessly with these key decision makers to move our federal and state proactive legislative agendas, we also spend hours working to defeat proposed legislation that would be detrimental to the community banking industry. Elections are expensive, and they’ll only get more expensive each year. For us to continue supporting smart candidates who advocate for our industry, we need your help funding the IBAT PACs.
You should have received Bank PAC Drive Month information in the mail recently. For those who conduct annual PAC Drives, thank you! If your bank has never hosted a PAC Drive, please consider organizing one this year. We’d also like to invite you to check the IBAT website for information on both state and federal issues and initiatives that IBAT is working on for you, your stakeholders, employees and customers. We need your involvement! Don’t hesitate to let Steve Scurlock or Mere Fowler know how we can assist with this important effort.
