April 24-25 in D.C.: Key Legislators and Regulators to Address Bank Leaders at ABA Summit


​More than 1,300 bankers from across the country will head to the nation’s capital for the American Bankers Association’s Government Relations Summit, April 24-25 at the Marriott Marquis Washington. The Summit, one of ABA’s most popular events, will offer attendees the opportunity to hear directly from some of the top lawmakers such as Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), and Rep. Blaine Luektemeyer (R-MO). Bank regulators, including Mick Mulvaney, Acting Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, and Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting will also speak at the event. In addition, attendees will visit Capitol Hill where they will have the chance to advocate for financial regulatory reform, urging the House to pass the bipartisan legislation that recently cleared the U.S. Senate.
“The timing of this Washington Summit couldn’t be more ideal,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “Our members will likely arrive with Congress close to finalizing the most significant regulatory reform bill in nearly a decade. They can help push the legislation across the finish line in the House, while making the case for additional reforms that will allow banks of all sizes to better serve their customers and communities.”
