ICBA Community Bank Advocacy

Take Action: Be Heard - Grassroots Advocacy

ICBA's Take Action: Be Heard grassroots advocacy toolkit offers a variety of tools to help community banks 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.

Regulatory and Legislative Advocacy

ICBA engages members of Congress and federal regulators to help them understand our industry and concerns through our Community Focus 2020 plan and continuous push for pro-community bank policies. 

Policy resolutions are approved by the ICBA Policy Development Committee and the Board of Directors to broadly describe the association’s major policy objectives for the year. The resolutions are designed to provide policy guidance for ICBA officers and staff and general policy direction for ICBA standing committees, the Federal Delegate Board, councils, and task forces.
