Each year, WBA’s advocacy priorities, professional development programs, and products and services are guided by the volunteer bankers on 11 committees and section boards. The leaders of these groups are bankers who are not only experts in their field, but also dedicated to Wisconsin’s banking industry, as shown by their willingness to commit time and talent through their service.
