Stephanie O’Keefe: The Amplify Initiative, which we’re rolling out next month in test markets, is a new and innovative public affairs and advocacy resource to help bankers, ABA, and state associations enhance the overall reputation of the industry. The focus is on the important role bankers and banks play as they invest in the customers, neighborhoods, and businesses they serve. This is an effort to make sure that what banks do—serving their customers and communities as well as driving the economy—becomes both better known and appreciated. aBaBJ: What has shaped the program? SO: Amplify is the next step in our work to improve the perception of banking in the eyes of policymakers and the public, and it draws upon information gathered from the extensive consumer research we conducted last year. The initiative will take time to build out, but it is designed to provide a lasting infrastructure that can be used going forward to ensure that bankers’ contributions at every level are effectively communicated. comPlIAnce ABA Introduces new certificate in compliance lending ABA has created a new credential—the ABA Certificate in Compliance Lending—to recognize bank employees’ knowledge and skill in applying lending compliance regulations.
