Senate Banking Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) has been announced as a keynote speaker at the ABA Government Relations Summit, to be held March 14-16 in Washington, D.C. In his final year leading the banking panel, Shelby will address regulatory reform and other top 2016 priorities.
Shelby joins other big names on the Summit program, including former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, Politico economics correspondent Ben White and election-watchers Charlie Cook and Stu Rothenberg.
Bank employees and directors are encouraged to attend the largest gathering of banking industry leaders in the nation’s capital. As ABA seeks to increase the banking industry’s political muscularity in Washington, it is calling on all bankers to increase their advocacy efforts and help lawmakers and candidates for elected office understand the roles banks play in economic growth and job creation. Bankers who attend the Summit will gain fresh insights and valuable information that they can share with their institutions and use to encourage colleagues to participate in these efforts throughout the year.
