GBA Advocacy

The Georgia Bankers Association represents the banking industry before the Georgia General Assembly, the U.S. Congress and various state and federal regulatory agencies.

GBA Regulatory and Legislative Priorities

  • To promote the general welfare and usefulness of banking and the preservation of a sound banking system.
  • Support policy and regulatory actions that enable lending and foster job creation.
  • Remove excessive regulation and other barriers to serving families, businesses and our hometowns.
  • Advocate for continued charter choice and a level playing field with non-bank financial services providers.
