It is critical that Idaho bankers make this annual trip to build relationships with decision-makers in Washington. It is also important that the unique perspective of Pacific Northwest bankers is part of the national debate. Top regulatory officials, national associations and our members of Congress all need to hear from bankers about the issues impacting our ability to serve our customers and communities.
Congressional visits are subject to the legislative calendar, so scheduling is a work in progress. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we develop a more complete itinerary.
This year we will be staying at Mayflower Hotel with a room rate of $319 plus fees and taxes. Association staff will make all lodging reservations, however, participants will be responsible for the cost of their room and all other travel arrangements.
If you do not intend to participate in the pre-event optional tour, please plan to arrive in D.C. on Monday, September 23rd, for the Federal Reserve Briefing at 2:00pm. The week will conclude with a reception at the U.S. Capitol to include all three state attendees, staff and invited congressional delegates. Flight departures should be planned for Thursday, September 26th. Attendees are responsible for making their own airline reservations.
****Note to members of the Idaho Community Bankers Association (ICBA) – The ICBA is once again offering PNWCHV scholarships. If you need more information or would like to reserve one of these scholarships, please contact the IBA office.***
