The Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI) joined with the National Association of Home Builders, American Bar Association, American Medical Association, Consumer Technology Association, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, and others to attend the AdvocacyTech Conference in Chicago on September 20, 2017. AdvocacyTech is a premier event for advocacy professionals to receive information on the latest and most innovative technologies designed to engage grassroots support and move their organization’s agenda forward.
The AdvocacyTech conference was hosted by the Grassroots Professional Network (GPN). The GPN was founded by the Independent Community Bankers of America’s (ICBA) Vice President of Advocacy, Joshua Habursky, and is a community of public affairs professionals who exchange innovative ideas. The GPN encourages advocacy executives at all levels to work together in shaping their profession; and with the common goal of providing professional development and networking opportunities, the group has quickly grown to hundreds of participants.
