Thank you for a successful 2019 ICBA Capital Summit!

ICBA Capital Summit

By coming together and espousing the community bank message, we will make change happen for our industry, our customers, and our communities.

The ICBA Capital Summit is the best way for community bankers to meet with their lawmakers and press issues including Bank Secrecy Act modernization, the evolving competitive landscape with fintech companies, undue tax advantages of credit unions and Farm Credit System lenders, the need for data breach legislation and more! 

Whether you are passionate about advocating for your bank and our industry or simply want to join arms with your fellow community bankers to raise the visibility of community banking, ICBA’s Capital Summit is the place to be.

The 2020 ICBA Capital Summit will be held Tuesday, April 28 – Friday, May 1, 2020.

Thank you to all of those who attended the 2019 ICBA Capital Summit. Personal engagement and story-telling are the keys to effective grassroots advocacy and have helped community bankers achieve positive gains in Washington.
