Bank On Washington Forum


The 2022 Bank On Washington forum will be held at the Yakima Valley Convention Center on October 24th and 25th. Join with others from across the state as we think about how we can meet the financial services needs of the un and under-banked and communities historically excluded from mainstream financial services. More details will be coming soon. We hope to see you there!
