We’re looking forward to seeing you April 23-25 for the 2018 ABA Government Relations Summit in Washington, DC. The Summit presents a great opportunity for Idaho bankers to meet with our Congressional Delegation and representatives from the regulatory agencies to ensure they understand the principles that guide our industry, and incorporate them into policy. Idaho Bankers play a hugely important role in that Senator Crapo is the Senate Banking Chairman.  The Idaho Community Bankers Association (ICBA) is pleased to provide at least two travel scholarships up to $750.  Scholarships are redeemed through the ICBA following the GR Summit for travel-related expenses.
