As a Charter Member of the Maryland Bankers Association, the following are just a few ways your organization can benefit through membership, not to mention opportunities for you and your colleagues:
The Maryland Bankers Association actively participates in legislative, regulatory and judicial affairs at the state and federal levels and when warranted, locally. MBA's legislative efforts include drafting, monitoring, and influencing the outcome of legislation in Annapolis and in Washington D.C. that is beneficial to the banking industry. Regardless of charter, most banking bills impact any financial institution doing business in Maryland.
In addition to its legislative efforts, the Association sponsors the Maryland Bankers Political Action Committee (Maryland BankPAC) to help elect candidates to state and federal office that are supportive of the banking industry.
