The ICBM PAC is a non-partisan political action committee, and the only state PAC dedicated exclusively to representing the Minnesota community banking industry. The goal of the ICBM PAC is to support the election of pro-community banking candidates.
Your support is critical. By generating personal, voluntary contributions from association members, ICBM PAC maintains an essential industry advocacy role. Your support of the ICBM PAC ensures that our advocacy work continues in St. Paul–educating legislators on the importance of community banks and monitoring and initiating legislation that would impact community banking, plus supporting the campaigns of legislators who are supportive of our industry.
As an ICBM member, you are encouraged to participate in relationship-building with state legislators – and part of that process includes financial support for their campaigns. If you would like to discuss a PAC donation for a local candidate, please contact Jim Amundson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-789-3985.
As a reminder – under state law, once a year Minnesota residents can donate up to $50 per person or $100 per married couple to Minnesota political parties and candidates for Minnesota state offices and receive a full refund through the state’s Political Contribution Refund program. This is another great way for community bankers to get involved by providing direct support to candidates.
