NH Bankers Holds its Annual "Capitol Day"
65 BANKERS VISIT WITH STATE HOUSE LEADERS
The New Hampshire Bankers Association (NH Bankers) held its annual “Capitol Day” on Tuesday, March 6th with 65 New Hampshire bankers visiting the State House. NH Bankers introduced its members to key legislative leaders and discussed the association’s policy initiatives for the year. This event is designed to engage many non-CEO bank employees, helping to expand the association’s advocacy at the State House.
NH Bankers kicked off its Capitol Day with a morning welcome by Bank Commissioner Jerry Little. Bank employees also met with Senate President Chuck Morse (R-Salem), Commissioner Taylor Caswell, Department of Business & Economic Affairs, and Senator Dan Innis (R-New Castle), Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee. Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) spoke to the group during a luncheon, which was followed by visits to the House Chamber during a busy session and a Commerce Committee meeting. The day wrapped up with a visit to the Executive Council Chambers with Governor Chris Sununu.
“This was our largest group yet, representing the next generation of bankers,” said Christiana Thornton, President/CEO of NH Bankers. “Capitol Day exposes them to the legislative process, while also impressing upon lawmakers the interests of a broad range of bank employees active in their communities and local economies.”
