At Your Service AMERICAN BANKERS ASSOCIATION know Cathy Keating Chairman aBa housing Partners with aBaBJ: the aBa housing Partners Foundation will complete its 12th habitat for humanity build during aBa’s annual convention in San Diego. how did you first become involved in supporting habitat? Cathy Keating: I became involved with Habitat as the first lady of Oklahoma. I participated in a build in Kentucky and was captivated by Habitat’s purpose and mission—everyone coming together to work for the working poor, especially single mothers. The program is about giving a helping hand and not a handout. I was inspired to do more, so I worked with my fellow first ladies to develop the First Ladies Build program. We ultimately hosted a Habitat build in every capital city of America. aBaBJ: What does the aBa housing Partners’ convention city build mean for the banking industry? CK: Our purpose is to highlight the work that’s already going on. What we’ll be doing in San Diego is what banks across the country do every day—often quietly—and that’s to leave a very positive footprint on their communities. We’re highlighting what banks and bankers do all across the country to support the American Dream. Questions? E-mail the ABA Housing Partners Foundation at housingpartners@aba.com. Industry AdvocAcy ABA Forms new Advocacy organization ABA’s Board of Directors approved the creation of Financial Education and Advocacy Initiative Inc., a new nonprofit organization that will help strengthen the banking industry’s voice in Washington. The FEAI is structured as a 501(c)(4) and can accept corporate contributions. The funding will be used to promote banks’ positions on policy issues and to educate both policymakers and the public about the importance of those issues to our country’s economic growth and prosperity. Some funds also will be used to support key congressional campaigns. “The future of our industry depends on how well decision-makers in Washington understand banks and the critical role they play in the economy and job growth,” said ABA President and CEO Frank Keating. “This new organization will give us more firepower in our battle to protect the banking franchise.” For more information, contact ABA’s Jonathan Felts at jfelts@aba.com. n in the cApItAl Basel III resources Available on ABA Website ABA has developed an online resources section to help community bankers evaluate how the Basel III capital proposals would affect their institutions.
