The Indiana Bankers Association gives the state banking community a voice in the Indiana General Assembly and in Washington, D.C. The IBA Government Relations Team advocates for a healthy banking environment by initiating, negotiating and lobbying for the enactment of positive banking laws and regulations, and by opposing measures that would be hurtful to banks and their customers.
As part of the IBA's commitment to engage the next generation of Indiana bankers, we've begun a video series spotlights bankers discussing topics like careers in banking, their experience in the industry, why banks need young people and more.
The BankLEAD Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to gain real world experience in settings outside of the classroom while banks benefit from fresh ideas and creative ways for recruiting a new generation of banking talent.
This comprehensive job board interfaces with social media outlets to keep candidates informed of positions available in banking, while providing enhanced marketing for employers to attract candidates outside of the industry to a career in banking.
The IBA's Future Leadership Division (FLD) is a platform to support the next generation of Indiana bankers. Its mission is to connect banking professionals within the IBA membership by providing education, networking and volunteer opportunities.
The November/December Hoosier Banker tells the story of IBA’s Future Leadership Division – its mission, leadership and impressive growth. This issue also covers IBA’s 2019 Annual Convention, featuring a theme of "Fresh Perspectives on the Way We Bank." Other article topics include a review of legislative interim study committees, the 2019 FLD Leadership Conference, the Indiana Do Not Call Law, the FLSA Overtime Rule and much more.
Products and service offerings are an integral part of the Indiana Bankers Association membership. The IBA acts as a conduit to assist IBA member banks in finding the appropriate IBA associate member to fulfill their needs; while also assisting IBA associate members, as they target appropriate IBA member banks with their products or services. The Association is ever alert for viable companies of benefit to the Indiana banking community.
More fun visits with @Horizon_Bank, First State Bank of Porter, and Community State Bank. The diversity of Indiana banks is awesome! In one day I see everything from publicly traded to family owned and 800+ employees to 8 employees. I love it! @indianabankers #hoosierbankers pic.twitter.com/xcAX69rMjC— Lucas White (@LucasNWhite) November 28, 2019
The benefits of IBA membership are numerous. One that stands strong is the IBA is the only banking trade association in Indiana; creating a unified voice and unified representation for banks in Indiana.
