COVID-19 Update for Banks

Traffic sign that reads "coronavirus"

Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, the Indiana Bankers Association is taking the following precautions:

  • ​​​​​​The IBA Mega Conference, originally scheduled for May 12-14, has been postponed. We are exploring options to hold the event this fall and will notify members as updates become available.
  • All IBA in-person events through April 30 are postponed until further notice. When possible, events will be rescheduled as online offerings. Registrants will be contacted regarding scheduling information. Note that previously scheduled online events are to continue as planned.
  • All visits to the IBA offices are currently suspended.

These measures are to be reassessed continually and updated as needed. The safety and well-being of IBA members remains our top priority, and we look forward to rescheduling in-person events at a more appropriate time.
