Every year, the Wisconsin Bankers Association seeks a diverse range of volunteers from all areas of the state and from financial institutions of all sizes and types.

Volunteers are not just bank presidents, but come from a variety of areas of the bank, including personal banking, lending, sales and marketing, compliance, security, information technology, trust, human resources, accounting, insurance and more.

These bankers help pass legislation, meet with elected officials, plan conferences, give out scholarships, track industry issues and discuss trends. Additionally, they make many important decisions for WBA, including what kind of education and training programs are offered, what legislation is developed and what resources are available to Wisconsin’s more than 35,000 bank employees.

WBA benefits from bankers’ expertise; and bankers, in turn, benefit from networking, learning more about important banking issues and taking an active role in the industry.
