Special thanks to all the banks below who have already qualified for Gold Triangle in 2018! Want your name on the list? 

WBA has two advocacy funds for you to donate to. The first, the Alliance of Bankers for Wisconsin (ABW) Conduit Fund acts as your personal "political bank account." With this option, you choose which candidates or legislative party committees your donation goes to. If you want to participate in our efforts but want WBA to select which candidates to give to, you can give to Wisbankpac, a political action committee registered with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission and Federal Elections Commission.

Bankers will need to continue to be very involved in talking to our legislators and regulators, and we will need strong, unified industry positions that make sense in this economic and political environment. WBA will continue to support those elected officials who support us. As always, WBA focuses on winning elections by supporting candidates in the "Banker" party, not Democrat or Republican.

Gold Triangle Club banks are at the forefront of the banking industry's political action effort. To qualify for membership in the Club, bank employees and directors must contribute a minimum amount to WBA's political action funds (the Alliance of Bankers for Wisconsin political conduit and WBA's political action committee, Wisbankpac) apportioned by bank asset size:
