Just as “relationship banking” is important to your bank’s success, building solid and lasting interactions with public officials is critical. You have more comfort lending to someone you know; public officials and media also rely more on people they know and trust. We need to build these relationships now.
Like never before, banking has sustained heavy regulatory assault over the past several years, due to overreaching, harmful and unnecessary legislation. Banks have borne the brunt of misguided and misdirected blame following the 2008 economic crash. Your voice is needed more than ever to fight back and protect and defend your job and your industry. Colorado Bankers cannot afford to sit on the sidelines and silently fall victim to further damaging regulation. The Center for Bank Advocacy Training Practicum is a yearlong, learn-by-doing course on increasing banks’ influence on public policy.
We cannot afford to sit idly by as unnecessary and harmful regulations pile up. Bankers must stand up and fight back to defend our industry and our jobs.
