Good government is a reflection of good people getting involved in the process. As community leaders, it is imperative that New Hampshire bankers be informed and to participate in the process both as individuals and as an industry. NH Bankers works everyday on the legislative and regulatory issues that impact our member banks and their ability to serve their communities.
Banking is one of the most highly regulated industries in the marketplace and competition for market share is increasing everyday. It is for these reasons that the banking industry must have a strong voice to represent its interests.
Through its government relations program, NH Bankers represents the interests of our member banks to state government as well as federal legislative and regulatory bodies. NH Bankers reviews, monitors and responds to legislation and regulatory action, at both the state and federal level, and serves as a resource to legislators, their staff and agency/department staff. In addition, NH Bankers works with member banks to promote the association’s government relations activity and to encourage active participation in the process by providing the necessary resources and information needed to communicate effectively on the issues.
