Make sure you’re not on mute! Speak up (virtually) for Wisconsin’s banking industry!

The events of the past year have shown how integral banks are in keeping their communities afloat, make sure your elected representatives understand that by attending the 2021 WBA Capitol Day and telling your story. Very few legislators have experience in banking, it’s critical to build relationships with your legislators so you can show them how public policy impacts your bank’s ability to aid in the economic growth and vitality of your community.

The 2021 Capitol Day will be virtual and held in two parts: a large-group kickoff on May 11, and individual meetings with legislators. As part of Capitol Day, you will:

  • Connect with legislators to share the positive impact bankers are having on Wisconsin businesses, communities, and the economy.
  • Provide legislators with a call-to-action on how they can help your bank and the industry as a whole.
  • Hear from State Assembly and Senate leaders as they provide updates on the 2021-22 legislative session and political dynamics.
  • Receive a WBA Government Relations update with a rundown of our progress on accomplishing our legislative agenda.

Agenda - May 11, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. CT

  • Welcome
  • Legislative speakers address the group
  • Legislative update, issue discussion
  • Update from WBA leadership
  • Closing remarks

May 11 and the following week

Individual meetings will be held statewide between legislators and bankers in their constituency. The schedule of these individual meetings will be shared before the May 11 kickoff event.

WBA will match bankers with their local legislators and provide a packet on how to connect with legislators, along with talking points and background information on each relevant discussion topic.
