2019 FLD Day at the Statehouse

Program Overview: 

The Future Leadership Division (FLD) Day at the Statehouse is dedicated to giving a voice to emerging bank leaders in the political process. This event, recognized in 2015 as the Outstanding Individual Program/Event by the Indiana Society Association of Executives, is a prime opportunity to get to know legislators and learn firsthand about the legislative process. 

Indiana Statehouse

Though IBA is active politically through lobbying and PAC support, IBA’s most effective advocacy takes place at the grassroots level, when bankers meet face-to-face with lawmakers to express industry views. Members of the Indiana General Assembly welcome the opportunity to hear directly from their banking constituents, and they appreciate the effort you make to visit them during Session.

FLD Day at the Statehouse is your opportunity to become politically engaged, and unlock your potential as an industry advocate in Indiana’s political process. Attendees will have an opportunity to: 
  • Hear experts share timely legislative updates; 
  • Learn to communicate effectively with those in power; 
  • Hear success stories of bankers in action; 
  • See behind-the-scenes views of the Statehouse and learn its history; 
  • Witness legislative hearings; 
  • Be an advocate for the banking industry.

The tentative agenda will include an introduction to lobbying and grassroots advocacy, a review of issues facing the industry, and meetings with elected officials in the Statehouse. Other time may be spent watching the legislative process in action, observing floor sessions of the Indiana House and Senate, and exploring the halls of Indiana's Statehouse. Throughout the day, attendees will benefit from ample networking time, allowing relationships to be formed with fellow bankers. 

The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. with registration and networking, and it will conclude at approximately  3:00 p.m.
