Leaders in Advocacy
This program was created to establish an advocacy base of young leaders who are educated on banking industry issues and understand how to effectively communicate with legislators and regulators. The class will meet from January through October, followed by continuous involvement in IBA advocacy efforts throughout their banking careers.
The Leaders in Advocacy program plays a significant role in the development of strong advocates for the banking industry, but also gives bankers the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of advocacy while networking with bank leaders around the state. The class will participate in meetings and visits to the Capitol, including attending Gov. Kim Reynolds’ Condition of the State address and the IBA’s Capitol Hill Visit in Washington, D.C. Each participant will also work to establish a bank advocacy plan to implement at their banks.
