NBA is leading the charge on behalf of the Nevada banking industry.
Since 1908, advocacy has been one of the primary member benefits of the Nevada Bankers Association. The Nevada Bankers Association is Nevada's only full-service trade association representing FDIC-insured state and national banks and trust companies doing business in Nevada.
With guidance from the Government Affairs Committee, our advocacy efforts include:
- State Lobbying: Our team serves as the primary lobbyists for NBA members in Carson City.
- Federal Lobbying: We work actively in Washington, D.C. on federal legislative and regulatory matters and litigation.
- Grassroots Network: We leverage banker relationships with their local legislators in order to solidify support for NBA initiatives.
- BankPac: Our staff can present to bank boards and/or employees on the importance of PAC.
- Regulatory Agencies: We regularly interact with state and federal regulators (NV FID, OCC, FDIC, CFPB, Fed) to ensure NBA is an essential stakeholder in formulation of regulations.
- Member/Media Relations: We provide information to membership and media on relevant banking matters.

What is BankPac?
The Nevada Bankers Association Political Action Committee was formed to protect the livelihood of the banking industry. The goal of BankPAC is to provide direct monetary contributions to support those elected officials or candidates for state and federal offices who support the priority issues of the Nevada banking industry. These priorities include business and economy friendly initiatives and legislation and regulation that allow for banks to provide safe financial products needed by the communities they serve. BankPAC allows Bankers to band together to provide contributions to those political candidates who support these causes or who have demonstrated an interest in them.
Who is BankPAC for?
As a Nevada banker, NBA BankPAC is your Political Action Committee. BankPAC unites the voice of bankers across Nevada to protect and promote your interests and your industry.
There is strength in numbers. BankPAC allows us to pool our resources to make a larger more influential statement to our legislators. BankPAC is non-partisan. We support candidates and representative that place a high value on strength and diversity of financial providers and reasonable regulation that protects without stifling.
When state legislators introduce bills that could negatively impact the way banks conduct their business, BankPAC helps your voice to be heard in Nevada’s capital. A strong political action committee is essential for an effective government relation’s effort.
Getting involved in BankPAC ensures the strength and vitality of the industry that supports your livelihood. Every banker can do his or her part to protect the industry by contributing to BankPac. If every Nevada banker contributed just $1 a week, we could go a long way toward shaping the future of the industry.
NBA BankPAC Political Purpose
The political purpose of NBA BankPAC is to provide the opportunity for individuals interested in the future of the banking industry to contribute to the support of worthy candidates for State office who believe in the principles to which the banking industry is dedicated.
