2016-2017 IBA AGRICULTURAL BANKERS COMMITTEE
Chairman: Blair Lyon, VP/Commercial Loan Officer, Bank of Idaho
Vice Chairman: Paul Nelson, Senior Relationship Manager, Senior Ag. Industry Specialist, Wells Fargo Bank
The IBA Agricultural Bankers Committee is the forum through which bankers can stay abreast of new developments within the agricultural industry. The Committee also studies and engages in problems that are facing ranchers and farmers in the state. Representatives from the Idaho Congressional delegation often attend the meetings to update members on the most recent developments regarding federal legislative and regulatory issues.
The committee works closely with the Idaho Department of Agriculture on relevant issues. Representatives from the committee are active in the Food Producers of Idaho, which provides an excellent opportunity for bankers and members of the agricultural community to enhance their relationships.
State legislative matters are a key focus for this committee. Each year, they review a variety of legislative proposals that impact Idaho’s agricultural industry.
