Annual Washington Visit set for Oklahoma bankers

The OBA’s Annual Washington Visit has been scheduled for Sept. 24-26 and the hotel will be The Mayflower Hotel.

We challenge you to join the “Race to 100.” We’re striving for 100 bankers in D.C. for the 2023 OBA Washington Visit. We are still finalizing the exact times but know we will meet with the following: ABA, Federal Reserve, FinCEN, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, FDIC, OCC, Treasury and the Oklahoma delegation. Additionally, Congresswoman Stephanie Bice will lead the group on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Capitol to conclude the visit.

Registration information should be hitting your bank shortly, but you can also download the registration and information form, and get more info on the hotel, by clicking here (.pdf). Click here to access the hotel reservation link.

If you have any questions, contact Megan McGuire at the OBA.
