The Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Banking Luncheon this Friday, Sept. 6. The keynote speaker this year will be former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating, who is the current president and CEO of the American Bankers Association, a 135-year-old association that represents banks of all sizes and charters, and is the voice for the nation's $13-trillion banking industry and its two million employees. Governor Keating’s “Washington Update” will highlight the most current issues happening in the banking world, including the state of the industry and the importance of working with Congress to facilitate regulatory burden relief. Keating’s talk will also include ways that bankers can help to grow the economy, and briefly comment on topics like interchange and cyber security.
