Congratulations to WBA’s 2021 BIGG Award Winners!

Triangle Background

The Wisconsin Bankers Association is grateful to the banks that go above and beyond to help achieve our advocacy goals. For these efforts, we are pleased to present these members with our Bankers Involved in Grassroots and Government (BIGG) award. The BIGG award is our highest level of recognition for advocacy by our member banks. Congratulations to the 19 banks that have attained BIGG status so far in 2021:  

  • American National Bank – Fox Cities
  • Associated Bank
  • Bank of Brodhead
  • Bank of Sun Prairie
  • Bank of Wisconsin Dells
  • Capitol Bank
  • Charter Bank
  • East Wisconsin Savings Bank
  • The Equitable Bank
  • FNC Bank
  • Horicon Bank
  • Investors Community Bank
  • Monona Bank
  • Mound City Bank
  • National Exchange Bank and Trust
  • North Shore Bank
  • Northwestern Bank
  • The Park Bank
  • State Bank Financial
  • The Stephenson National Bank & Trust
  • Town Bank
  • Waldo State Bank
  • Wolf River Community Bank

To achieve BIGG status, institutions must meet at least five of these seven criteria:

  • Have named an Advocacy Officer
  • Obtain Gold Triangle award
  • Contribute to WBA’s issue advocacy fund
  • Have at least one bank employee attend WBA Capitol Day
  • Have a member of the bank participate in a Federal delegation meeting or go on a D.C. regulatory trip
  • Have the bank hold a Take Your Legislator to Work Day
  • Other (e.g. testify on a bill, host a fundraiser, analyze legislation, etc.)

 2021 isn’t over yet! We have several banks close to both Gold Triangle (fundraising) and BIGG, and we will be reaching out to those members to try to get them over the hump!
