The Indiana Bankers Association gives the state banking community a voice in the Indiana General Assembly and in Washington, D.C. The IBA Government Relations Team advocates for a healthy banking environment by initiating, negotiating and lobbying for the enactment of positive banking laws and regulations, and by opposing measures that would be hurtful to banks and their customers.
As part of the IBA's commitment to engage the next generation of Indiana bankers, we've begun a video series spotlights bankers discussing topics like careers in banking, their experience in the industry, why banks need young people and more.
The BankLEAD Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to gain real world experience in settings outside of the classroom while banks benefit from fresh ideas and creative ways for recruiting a new generation of banking talent.
This comprehensive job board interfaces with social media outlets to keep candidates informed of positions available in banking, while providing enhanced marketing for employers to attract candidates outside of the industry to a career in banking.
The IBA's Future Leadership Division (FLD) is a platform to support the next generation of Indiana bankers. Its mission is to connect banking professionals within the IBA membership by providing education, networking and volunteer opportunities.
The July/August Hoosier Banker shares the story of the creation of Indiana’s first banking concentration, made available last year at Purdue University Northwest, as well as the establish of banking minors to be offered this fall at PNW and Ball State University. This innovative programming aligns with the Next-Gen pillar of the IBA strategic plan.
Products and service offerings are an integral part of the Indiana Bankers Association membership. The IBA acts as a conduit to assist IBA member banks in finding the appropriate IBA associate member to fulfill their needs; while also assisting IBA associate members, as they target appropriate IBA member banks with their products or services. The Association is ever alert for viable companies of benefit to the Indiana banking community.
Thank you, Indiana bankers, for working long hours in support of customers and communities. From saving jobs through the Paycheck Protection Program to working at the bank to ensure customers are served, our state is thankful for you.

The benefits of IBA membership are numerous. One that stands strong is the IBA is the only banking trade association in Indiana; creating a unified voice and unified representation for banks in Indiana.
