Community bankers bring industry voice to Capitol Hill

Community bankers from across the United States gathered on Capitol Hill during the ICBA Washington Policy Summit

​WASHINGTON, 5 May 2015  – Community bankers from across the nation gathered on Capitol Hill for more than 300 meetings with members of Congress as part of the ICBA Washington Policy Summit. Nearly 1,000 community bankers and industry advocates are gathered in the nation’s capital for this week’s summit.

Washington Policy Summit attendees are advocating community bank regulatory relief, improving data and cyber security laws, and repealing the credit union and Farm Credit System tax exemptions. Community bankers back home can take part by using ICBA’s Be Heard grassroots website to call on their members of Congress to cosponsor regulatory relief legislation.

The Washington Policy Summit continues today with remarks from Federal Reserve Governor Daniel Tarullo and continued grassroots meetings with members of Congress and federal financial regulators. Follow the summit on Twitter with the #ICBAWPS15 hashtag.
