WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association will host the largest gathering of bankers in Washington at its annual Government Relations Summit, March 24-26 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. Bankers from across the country will have the opportunity to hear from -- and meet with -- lawmakers and industry officials to explore the opportunities and challenges that come with today’s regulatory environment.
“ABA’s Government Relations Summit is a great opportunity for bankers to speak with policymakers to ensure they understand the principles that guide our industry and can incorporate them into key policy decisions,” said Frank Keating, ABA president and CEO.
Keynote speakers include House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Charlie Cook, editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report, and Peggy Noonan, columnist for the Wall Street Journal.
Bankers will also hear from senior officials from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., Federal Reserve and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
Industry leaders will address attendees on topics that include:
- Linking Principles to Policy -- Call on Congress to Act;
- Amplify: New Program to Boost Your Banks’ Profile; and
- Reports from the Hill and Regulatory Discussions
The full conference agenda is available here.
Other events taking place in connection with the GR Summit include the Emerging Leaders Forum and the Mutual Community Bank Conference and the Women’s Leadership Forum.
