2018 IBA Annual Washington Trip

Sep 30, 2018 to Oct 02, 2018
Hamilton Hotel
1001 14th St NW
Washington, DC 20005
Program Overview: 

The IBA Annual Washington Trip affords bankers the opportunity to talk with legislators and regulators about the successes and concerns of Indiana's banking industry. These officials need to hear your ideas firsthand in order to produce workable laws and regulations. This is your chance to tell policymakers face-to-face why the regulatory burden imposed on banks is too heavy and to make suggestions for modifications to burdensome rules. Bankers who have attended past Washington Visits were able to solve problems and raise issues of concern to policymakers individually. The trip is planned for maximum contact and productivity.

To ensure that all attendees are able to access all meetings, please register by Wednesday, Sept. 12. Registrations received after Sept. 12 will still be accepted, but attendees may not receive guaranteed access to briefings held on site at the FDIC or OCC.


Because we think all Indiana bankers should attend the IBA Annual Washington Trip, there is no registration fee for members. We ask attendees to pay their own travel costs (flight and hotel), and the Indiana Bankers Association and associate member sponsors will pay for all group meals.

Business casual or casual attire is appropriate for the group dinner events on Sunday, Sept. 30, and Tuesday, Oct. 2. Business attire should be worn all day on Monday, Oct. 1, as well as during the day on Tuesday, Oct. 2, for meetings with the legislators.
