Governmental relations, both state and national, rank as a top priority for the CBA. The CBA provides representation at all legislative committee meetings and prepares and introduces legislation and regulations that are beneficial to the membership. The CBA provides you with timely information and ensures your voice is heard with elected officials.
Banker Regulatory Forum : The goal of the forums is to establish a dialogue with state and federal regulators/agencies regarding their policies, procedures, and objectives. CBA members are invited to attend and ask the regulatory questions that are of concern to them.
Political Action Committee/Public Relations Fund: The CBA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) Fund is supported by contributions by the CBA members and through fundraisers organized by the CBA’s Leadership Division. The CBA’s PAC Fund provides Georgia’s community banking industry a voice in state politics through campaign contributions to state legislators and candidates seeking election. It also assists candidates who support community banking and are running for election to the Georgia State legislature. The CBA maintains the only state PAC working exclusively
for community banks.
Legislative Update: During the Georgia General Assembly session, the CBA provides members with weekly legislative updates on bills that are being tracked regarding banking regulation changes and updates.
Regulatory Review: The CBA provides members with timely summaries of various proposed and final regulations affecting the banking industry. Action Alerts are also sent when it is felt your personal attention is needed on a regulatory item.
