The California Bankers Association invites you to join your peers at the annual Joint Visit to Washington, D.C. with the Florida Bankers Association. We have provided links to the registration form below for your information.

For our upcoming visit, we are excited to offer a grant to emerging leaders from banks doing business in California who have not yet had the opportunity to join us on a D.C. visit. Upon attending the visit, the association will reimburse one emerging bank leader per bank for up to $2,000 of travel and accommodation-related expenses. CBA has a limited number of grants, and we encourage you to register early. Grants are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have joined us on a visit before, we hope that you might consider joining your emerging leader in D.C.

The visit begins at the Sofitel Hotel on Tuesday, September 26, at 5:00 p.m. with registration, the welcome reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. The visit concludes on Thursday, September 28, at noon.
