The 28th Annual Congressional Visit   |   April 28-30, 2020

IBAT’s Annual Congressional Visit provides an ideal opportunity for Texas community bankers to gain visibility with key decision makers from the Texas Congressional delegation and other important members of the banking industry. Decisions made in Washington, D.C. have a tremendous effect on community banks across Texas, and this is your chance to talk to those making the rules and regulations about the impact on your customers, bank and community. Only bankers can provide the real-life examples that tell the true story about the challenges they face every day due to the current regulatory landscape. The IBAT Congressional Visit takes place in conjunction with ICBA’s Capital Summit, which helps with the power of numbers when making visits on Capitol Hill. Many associate members attend as well as they receive valuable networking and face time with bankers, and enjoy being part of this important process.
