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 Jan/Feb 2020 Hoosier Banker offers a profile of Lucas White, president of The Fountain Trust Company and 2020 chairman of the Indiana Bankers Association. As a bonus, the cover article includes a video link about White. Additional magazine highlights include the 2019 Banking on Women Conference, a revisit of 2020 community banking predictions, the Indiana Bank and Thrift Stock Update, and information about the new IBA website.
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.
