Virtual Washington Fly-In: Western Region

Join fellow bankers and industry leaders from across the Western United States for a virtual meeting with agency leadership and lawmakers. In partnership with state bankers associations, ABA is hosting this year’s Washington Fly-in to ensure policies crucial to the banking industry remain front and center, and to provide a forum for critical questions from your bank. You will not want to miss out on this opportunity to speak directly to regulators about the need for commonsense policies and smart reform that will help America’s banks better serve their communities and grow the economy.

The Western States Regional Virtual Washington Fly-in begins September 28th with an in-depth discussion with ABA experts on key issues facing our industry at the federal level, followed by discussions with:

  • Federal Reserve Board Governor Michelle Bowman
  • OCC Acting Comptroller Brian Brooks
  • CFPB Director Kathy Kraninger
  • FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams
  • FinCEN Policy Experts
  • Senior SBA & Treasury Policy Experts
  • Senior FHFA Policy Experts


After registering you will receive instructions for participating in each meeting from [email protected].
