Get to Know the PA Bankers' Boards and Committees
The Key to PA Bankers Members’ Success
Part of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association’s core mission is to provide members with premier financial services opportunities in continuing education, industry advocacy, and member networking and engagement. Our mission is only plausible due to the dedication of the men and women who serve as Association volunteers.
Committees are the lifeblood of the PA Bankers and allow the organization to stay abreast of leading industry news, emerging trends and other current affairs relevant to the banking industry. Volunteer knowledge and expertise guide the Association and provide greater opportunity to all PA Bankers members.
Government Relations Committee
PA Bankers' Government Relations Policy Committee (GRPC) determines the policies and grassroots initiatives that have the greatest impact on the banking industry and PA Bankers members. This Policy Committee is advised by specialty committees with specific expertise such as lending, tax, insurance, deposits, securities, trust and estates, and more. Supplemented by special task forces, and working groups when needed, the GRPC weighs its advisory groups’ recommendations, establishes the association’s positions and prioritizes the allocation of available resources. A Grassroots Committee focuses on coordinating grassroots efforts while building relationships with key members of Pennsylvania’s State Legislature. Additionally, government relations committees keep the members aware of pending regulations or other proposed changes that may affect the banking industry.

The committees work in tandem with all areas of the Association to ensure PA Bankers continues to provide updated services and networking opportunities that align with member need.
