Sharing some information on ABA Washington Summit

Bakari Sellers, a CNN political analyst and former South Carolina Democratic state legislator (at one time was the youngest African-American elected official in the nation), and Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez, a CBS News political contributor and former White House official under President George W. Bush, will be keynote speakers at the ABA Washington Summit, scheduled March 23-25 in Washington, D.C.

Sellers and Sanchez will discuss the national political landscape just three weeks after Super Tuesday, the day during the primary season when the most Democratic nominating delegates will be up for grabs. The Oklahoma primary is scheduled for that same day.

Super Tuesday is March 3, 2020.

Registration for the Summit is free for bankers and bank directors, among others. Attendees are also encouraged to register for ABA’s Emerging Leaders Forum and Women’s Leadership Forum, all of which are held in conjunction with the Summit.

The ABA Summit is the largest annual gathering of banking leaders in the nation’s capital. It demonstrates the strength of the Alliance of State Bankers Associations working in tandem with ABA to create the strongest, most successful advocacy group for the banking industry in the nation.

On behalf of the OBA’s leadership team, you’re encouraged to have someone from your bank attend. You are particularly encouraged to send some of your younger bankers who are on their way to developing more leadership skills that will benefit your bank. By doing so, it gives Oklahoma bankers a unique opportunity to advocate for meaningful changes that grow the economy and give your bank’s customers more choices.

Come to Washington and tell lawmakers and regulators how specific rules and regulations impact your ability to serve your customers and the communities you serve. We will have the opportunity to meet with all members of the Oklahoma delegation and key members of their staff.
