The 2019 ICBA Capital Summit will be held April 28 – May 1 in Washington. Community bankers from around the nation will travel to Washington to meet with their Members of Congress in their offices “on the hill” and hear federal financial regulators to discuss key issues. We’ll hear firsthand from financial and policy leaders, and work to influence the policy-making process. New York community bankers: Mark your calendars and save the dates. U.S. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo, a champion of the S.2155 regulatory relief bill that provided the most comprehensive relief for community banks since Dodd-Frank’s enactment in 2010, will be a featured speaker at the Capital Summit. as will the new FDIC Chair, Jelena McWilliams.
IBANYS will be scheduling meetings with members of the New York congressional delegation. With a Democratic House of Representatives, a new agenda in the House Financial Services Committee, five new Representatives from New York and six New Yorkers on the House Financial Services Committee, it is more important than ever to bring our New York community bankers’ voices, priorities and stories to the forefront. Email John Witkowski or Steve Rice to confirm your participation and indicate which Representatives with whom you would like us to arrange meetings with.
