Independent Community Bankers Political Action Committee (ICBPAC)

Position

  • ICBA urges CEOs of all member banks, corporate associate members, and state and regional partners to sign an ICBPAC Prior Authorization form and contribute to ICBPAC.
  • CEOs should encourage their eligible officers and employees to contribute to ICBPAC, preferably by adopting payroll deduction as a contribution method.
  • CEOs should encourage their directors to contribute to ICBPAC. All banks that achieve 100 percent PAC participation from their board of directors are eligible for membership in ICBPAC’s Directors Club.

Background

ICBPAC is the only national federal political action committee that exclusively represents the interests of community banks and other community financial institutions. With $1.9 million contributed in the 2015 – 2016 election cycle, ICBPAC supported over 300 federal candidates and committees, securing ICBPAC’s place among the top federal PACs nationwide. The primary objective of ICBPAC is to support the election and reelection of candidates and members of Congress who have proven records of support for the community banking industry.

ICBPAC is essential to ensuring that the voices of community bankers are heard on Capitol Hill. Broad support of ICBPAC through contributions by member bank CEOs, executive employees, and directors is vital for the success of ICBA’s advocacy activities.
