LBA's annual Banker’s Day at the State Capitol provides bankers the opportunity to visit with lawmakers on their turf to discuss issues important to the Louisiana banking community. Having a strong showing of Louisiana bankers is essential to communicate our message to our lawmakers and it is a great opportunity to thank legislators for their efforts on our industry's behalf.
2019 Bankers Day—the most recent day held—had 60 bankers and sponsors attend.
Typical event highlights include:
- Status of LBA-supported legislation and LBA-opposed legislation
- Update on LBA’s efforts at the Capitol
- Opportunities to visit with legislators on the House and Senate floor along with hearing from state policymakers during the event
- Scheduled in April or May each year
Nothing is more persuasive to lawmakers than when constituents feel strong enough about a cause to visit them at the Capitol.
Registration materials are sent to Government Relations and Grassroots Council members. This event is for member banks and event sponsors only.
