Young Bankers Day at the Capitol 

2017 Young Bankers Board at Missouri Capitol

Scheduled each state legislative session, Young Bankers Day at the Capitol is an opportunity for members of the Young Bankers Leadership Division to learn about and take part in Missouri’s political process by making a Target Banker visit to our state’s Capitol.

The Young Bankers Day at the Capitol is part of MBA's chief grassroots lobbying tool, the Target Banker Program. Target Banker visits are held in February, March and April of the state legislative session. As a Target Banker, you’ll be equipped with background information and talking points. MBA staff then accompanies you to the Capitol to meet with your legislators. These low-key, low-pressure visits are very valuable. The Target Banker program helps provide a continuous banking presence at the Capitol throughout the session, and gives the legislators one-on-one contact with their constituents.

Young Banker PAC

Our consistent and purposeful effort to elect pro-banking legislators has had a real impact on our ability to pass important legislation. And, it has made it possible for us to stop bad legislation. More bankers investing in our PACs means great legislative support for the entire banking industry. No single individual can impact as many elections – we know that our PACs are the muscle behind MBA’s legislative agenda. Learn More About PAC

Top Three Reasons MBA Needs Your Involvement at the Missouri Capitol

  1. Only a handful of state legislators have significant experience in the banking industry.
  2. More than 1,000 bills were filed as of Jan. 5, the first day of the 2022 session. Hundreds more will follow by the time bill filing closes in March. These measures cover dozens of topics, including adoption, firearms, physicians, sewer districts and everything in between.
  3. Missouri's elected officials are getting younger. More than one-third of representatives and senators are under 50. Only two of our statewide officials is older than 50.
