CBA’s 60th Annual Legislative Conference

Last week, 132 CBA members representing 28 banks gathered in Sacramento for CBA’s 60th Annual Legislative Conference. Following a robust morning program, CBA members in attendance made the rounds at the state Capitol on behalf of our industry. In just four short hours, bankers visited 37 state Senators and 73 Assembly Members, bringing the combined total to 110 meetings with elected officials.

The one-day program included remarks by CBA President and CEO Rod Brown, CBA Chairman of the Board Mary Allis Curran and Chairman-elect Jeff Ball. Following a legislative briefing by CBA’s state government relations advocacy team, attendees heard presentations from some of the most influential leaders in Sacramento, including the chair of the Assembly Committee on Banking and Finance, Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento), Senator Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana), the chair of the Senate Committee on Banking and Financial Institutions, as well as the Commissioner for the Department of Financial Institutions Teveia Barnes. Closing out the morning program, Governor Jerry Brown shared his unique insight on California and the opportunities and challenges he sees before us.

CBA extends its sincere thanks to our conference sponsor, EverFi, Inc., and to everyone who participated and did an outstanding job of representing our industry at this important event.
