IBAT Chair Darla Rooke and President and CEO Chris Williston, along with past IBAT leaders and staff, travel the state in the beginning of each year to conduct briefings on the legislative and regulatory agenda as well as other important topics. We use these 15-20 meetings across Texas to share an update about IBAT’s efforts on behalf of the community banking industry. Banker participation provides necessary information to help us determine our priorities. IBAT prides itself on being a member-driven organization that exclusively represents the interests of community banks. This is an opportunity for our members to be heard, help us better understand the unique challenges you face each and every day, shape our future agenda and network with fellow community bankers in your area.
