IBA Regional Meetings
It is time once again for the Indiana Bankers Association to host a series of regional meetings around the state. The IBA implemented these meetings several years ago in an effort to facilitate grassroots communication between the bankers we serve and the legislators who serve our state. Over the years, the meetings have grown in popularity, and many banker-legislator connections have been fostered as a result. This year, we are pleased to present our 2018 round of IBA regional meetings in the cities of Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Lafayette, New Albany, Bloomington, Richmond, Evansville and Merrillville. We hope that you will consider joining us and help build our grassroots network throughout the state.
Each meeting will include an IBA and legislative update beginning at 11 a.m. (local time), preceding the legislative luncheon. This update, which is reserved for bankers, will cover a broad range of topics and is a prime opportunity for you to stay abreast of what your Association is doing for you and your bank.
Legislators are being asked to join us for lunch at noon (local time), following the IBA and legislative update. As in years past, our intended purpose of the legislator lunch is to provide you with an opportunity to network with local elected officials. Although the IBA invites each legislator to attend, we encourage you to also personally reach out to your legislators and invite them to attend. Members of the House of Representatives can be reached at 317-232-9600, while members of the Senate can be reached at 317-232-9400. Each regional meeting offers an ideal forum to start a new relationship with your legislator, or build upon an existing relationship, while talking about issues that are important to our industry.
The success of these meetings depends on solid banker attendance. If you personally cannot attend, please consider sending representatives from your bank. Additionally, please remember that attendance by you or one of your employees will count toward your bank’s grassroots portion of the Five Star Member goal.
If you have questions, please contact Josh Myers at 317-333-7165 or by email at email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you soon!
