The purpose of NBA BankPAC is to solicit contributions from our members for both state and national elections. In turn, NBA BankPAC uses these funds to support candidates who promote a strong, competitive banking system. Through the Nebraska Bankers Association Political Action Committee (BankPAC), the bankers of Nebraska have an industry-wide means of making political contributions to help finance the campaigns of candidates seeking elective office at both the state and federal levels.
What Is BankPAC? BankPAC is the political action committee sponsored by the Nebraska Bankers Association. The committee solicits voluntary contributions from directors, officers, and administrative personnel of NBA member banks. Those contributors then become members of BankPAC. BankPAC is a bi-partisan, non-profit, unincorporated association of individual bankers.
Why Do You Need My Support? BankPAC helps ensure that your individual political contribution works harder and goes further by pooling it with the contributions of other participating bankers. Your support of BankPAC enhances our ability to communicate with legislators about the needs of the banking industry.
Who Can Contribute? Individual contributions to the State PAC can be accepted from any employee, stockholder, officer, or director of a Nebraska bank or savings bank. All contributions must be voluntary, and all individuals have the right to refuse to contribute without fear of reprisal. Corporate contributions to the State PAC can be accepted from state-chartered banks and state-chartered savings banks, as well as the holding company of a state or national bank or state or federal savings bank.
Where Does the Money Go? The State BankPAC provides direct campaign support to candidates for the Nebraska Legislature and to candidates for state constitutional offices. The Federal BankPAC provides direct campaign support to candidates for Congress.
