CBA Conducts Editorial Board Meeting with the Los Angeles Times

General information

Last week, CBA conducted an editorial board meeting with the Los Angeles Times. The meeting, organized by CBA VP of Communications Beth Mills, and led by CBA President and CEO Rod Brown with participation from local CBA member bank leadership, was an excellent opportunity for California’s industry leaders to interface with the editorial board staff (those who determine the direction of the newspaper’s opinion page) and discuss issues of concern to the industry and consumers, and communicate the positive role their bank plays in the local community.

The meeting with the Times covered a wide range of topics including the increased regulatory pressures and the current operating environment for California banks, small business lending opportunities, the overall economic health of California and credit unions. CBA would like to acknowledge and thank the following bankers who joined us for this meeting: Tad Lowrey, CapitalSource Bank; Dave Misch, The Private Bank of California and Scott Racusin from Wedbush Bank.

An upcoming editorial board meeting with the Sacramento Bee is scheduled for May 14.
