Heitkamp, Perlmutter Join ABA Summit Lineup

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) will speak at ABA’s Government Relations Summit, March 14-16 in Washington, D.C. Both lawmakers will discuss how bankers can respond to the changing political environment during a panel discussion moderated by Politico economics correspondent Ben White.

Heitkamp and Perlmutter join House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) and Senate Banking Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) among the influential lawmakers on the program. Other keynote speakers include former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino and election-watchers Charlie Cook and Stu Rothenberg.

In addition to hearing from top policymakers and political experts and visiting Capitol Hill offices, the more than 1,000 bankers convening in D.C. will have the opportunity to register for several other ABA meetings taking place alongside the Summit. These include the Mutual Community Bank Conference, the Emerging Leaders Forum, the Women’s Leadership Forum and the American Bankers Insurance Association Washington Forum.
