Each year, IBAT hits the road to bring a legislative, regulatory and economic update to bankers across Texas. In early 2020, IBAT Chairman Richard Scanio and other distinguished panelists joined members across the state to bring the Texas community banking message into your backyard. IBAT hosted meetings in seven cities—Weslaco, Sulphur Springs, Graham, Amarillo, Lubbock, San Angelo and Irving—with more than 600 community bankers and industry advocates in attendance. Due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the second round of the tour with six additional stops was unfortunately cancelled.
IBAT looks forward to resuming the full tour in 2021 with 12 meetings covering our great state. IBAT member and non-member bankers are encouraged to bring members of their team to receive the latest industry information and to provide feedback to the association as we seek to serve you. 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. Please check this page later in the year for the 2021 Tour de Texas schedule.
