On June 26, the Wisconsin Bankers Association Government Relations Committee (GRC) will begin to create the banking industry’s priorities for the 2021-2022 legislative session, and we need your input! GRC Chair Gary Kuter, senior vice president/retail banking and chief compliance officer at Capitol Bank, Madison, will lead the committee of 30 bank executives in a discussion to shape the future of the banking industry. If you have an idea of what public policy WBA should pursue, please email Mike Semmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GRC considers the following areas as it creates the agenda for a recommendation to the WBA Board of Directors:
- Federal/state legislative policy areas (partial list):
- Economy, Banking Compliance, Agriculture, Wealth Management, Mortgage, Human Resources, Retail, Data Privacy & Cyber Security, Consumer Protection, Technology and Operations, Payment System
