Legislative Briefing & Reception

Feb 04, 2019
Hyatt Regency Indianapolis
1 S. Capitol Avenue
Program Overview: 

When the legislative session begins this January, members of the 2019 Indiana General Assembly will address numerous issues affecting Indiana’s banking community. In anticipation, the Indiana Bankers Association is hosting a legislative reception in honor of the Indiana General Assembly, statewide elected officials, their staff and spouses.

The evening will serve as a prime opportunity for bankers to get to know legislators, discuss important banking issues and thank those legislators who have helped us with critical issues in the past. We believe this occasion will greatly benefit members of the General Assembly, as well as all members of the banking community.

Please join your fellow bankers in a display of thanks to Indiana’s decision-makers by attending the 2019 legislative reception.

Invite Your Legislators to the Reception and Take Them to Dinner: You are encouraged to reach out to your elected officials in advance. Let them know you plan to attend and that you would like to visit with them at the reception. If possible, invite your legislator to dinner following the reception. To make an appointment with your legislator, call the Indiana House of Representatives at 317-232-9600 or 800-382-9842, or the Indiana Senate at 317-232-9400 or 800-382-9467.


4:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Legislative Briefing: The IBA government affairs personnel will conduct a legislative briefing promptly at 4:00 p.m. During the briefing, issues of particular importance to the banking community will be discussed. There will be time for questions and answers.
