Oregon Bankers Association - Independent Community Banks of Oregon

Oregon BankPAC

Oregon BankPAC is the Oregon Bankers Association's Political Action Committee. It is a bi-partisan, voluntary, non-profit organization governed by a committee of trustees.

Oregon BankPAC was organized in 1975 at the request of bankers to provide an organization through which they could participate more effectively in financially supporting political candidates who understand the interest of the banking industry. Oregon BankPAC remains the only political organization in Oregon specifically designed to meet the needs of Oregon bankers. Representation on this scale is essential if we are to establish and maintain the best environment for banking in Oregon.

Oregon BankPAC also serves as a forum for educating OBA members about state and national political activities affecting the banking industry and provides an effective way for members to become politically involved.
