By Tyler Nelson, Director of Communications

From continuing education to monitoring state and federal legislative agendas, the Tennessee Bankers Association is here for you. With the New Year upon us, we asked TBA staff, how do you recommend members engage with the Association in 2018?

Help teach your community financial literacy by taking part in the Personal Economics Program (PEP). We know how vital it is that our neighbors understand the importance of saving, using credit responsibly, and learning how to avoid fraud, scams, and predatory lending. When our community is financially literate, it has a lasting impact on our local economy. As PEP Coordinator, I see firsthand the great work our bankers are doing. Please email me at you’d like to get involved.

With nearly 30 open seats during the 2018 state elections, banker feedback on new candidates will be critical to TBA. Informing TBA’s government relations team about pro-banking and business candidates early in these races will enable BankPac to get out in front and support them. If you have recommendations of candidates TBA should support, please contact me at
