Advocacy

Your membership and grassroots involvement help to present community banking’s unified voice before Congress, the Administration and to Regulators. ICBA is community banking’s advocate on every important issue, including reducing regulatory and tax burden, fighting for competitive equity with credit unions and the Farm Credit System and opposing excessive concentration of the nation’s financial resources.

BE HEARD

Direct grassroots advocacy is essential to promoting federal policies that support community banking. ICBA’s Be Heard grassroots resource center offers a variety of tools to help community bankers amplify their voice with targeted outreach to federal policymakers. Let Congress and the regulatory agencies know that community banks are critical to the prosperity of Main Street America.

ICBPAC

The Independent Community Bankers Political Action Committee (ICBPAC) is non-partisan and the only federal PAC exclusively dedicated to protecting and promoting the community banking industry. The collective support of thousands of donors provides ICBPAC with the resources needed to make sure the voices of community bankers are heard by lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
