Reasons you should join the WBA Trust Section
A WBA Trust Banking Section priority several years in the making, a comprehensive rewrite of Wisconsin’s trust code was signed into law in December 2013. Thanks to the hard work of Trust Banking Section members who helped write the first significant overhaul of the trust code since 1972, Wisconsin is now a more attractive state in which to conduct trust business. But trust code reform was not the banking industry’s only success in the 2013-2014 state legislative session. WBA also got laws passed that create bank service corporations and prevent local governments from enacting burdensome foreclosure-related ordinances. WBA remains the leading financial institutions trade association in every metric that matters: bills passed, hours lobbied and political action funds raised. Representation in both Madison and Washington through WBA’s powerful grassroots advocacy effort is just one advantage of joining the WBA Trust Banking Section.
Members of WBA and the Trust Banking Section receive member pricing on all ABA online trust education, including telephone briefings, AIB online courses and self-paced eLearning courses. Members also receive a discounted registration fee at WBA Trust Conferences.
The section produces a newsletter, Trust/Wealth Management Monthly, that is distributed to all contacts within each WBA Trust Banking Section Member Institution via e-mail. Members will also have access to the WBA Trust Section ListServ as a tool for participants to use to ask other members trust related questions - such as questions related to Wisconsin’s Uniform Trust Code.
As a Member of the WBA Trust Section, you will meet with your peers to learn and share problems and/or ideas.
