You’ll notice the "Illinois Bankers Standing Tall" theme throughout our programs and correspondence over the next several months as we lead up to our Annual Conference in Springfield June 16-18.
Illinois banks and bankers stand tall in their communities, with their customers, and when representing the industry at the State Capitol or in Washington, D.C. Illinois banks create jobs, they safeguard customer deposits and make loans, and they provide services to virtually every sector of the economy, including the vast majority of households and state and local government agencies.
And your employees are second to none! The Illinois banking industry directly employs 105,000 employees and indirectly generates an additional 303,500 jobs totaling 408,500 jobs, with $22.6 billion in wages and salaries.
The IBA is proud to be a part of this great industry and even more proud to stand tall with you!
