Banking is a critical industry, and we need a wide variety of arrows in our quiver for the greatest impact on Congress!!
State Association PACs: These are important ways to support local and federal candidates and vary from state to state.
National Industry Trade Association PACs:
These target hundreds of candidates around the country. In the 2020 election cycle, the ABA BankPAC and the ICBPAC are averaging a contribution of $6,100 per candidate.
Friends of Traditional Banking: We're the inverse of a PAC--instead of spreading a little bit of money to a lot of campaigns, we focus a lot of money on a couple of key campaigns. We choose two Congressional races each cycle, and encourage our membership to donate directly to those campaigns. Each of our endorsed candidates end up with hundreds of thousands of dollars from bankers around the country! See success here:
