Target Banker Program
The Target Banker Program is MBA’s chief grassroots lobbying activity in which bankers discuss issues directly with state representatives and senators. Target Banker visits are scheduled throughout February, March and April during the state legislative session. These visits begin at MBA’s office, where bankers receive a short briefing from MBA staff on the “issue of the day,” including background and talking points when necessary. MBA staff then accompanies bankers to the Capitol to meet their representatives and senators.
Through these Target Banker visits, MBA has a continuous presence at the Capitol throughout the session. Legislators hear directly from you, their constituents, about how issues important to the banking industry affect their districts. The Target Banker Program is a great opportunity for bankers to get to know their legislators and build strong relationships for the future. Any bank employee is eligible to participate in the Target Banker program.
