Engage in Grassroots

In order to be effective, every banker needs to get involved in grassroots advocacy. Use these tools to write, call or meet with lawmakers to help build our industry's clout.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


 Send a Welcome Email to Your Member of Congress

Welcome them to the new legislative session and encourage their support of pro-growth policies that will pay dividends for the communities they represent.

It is recommended to send a personalized email message, adding information that is specific to your bank and your community.
