VBA Boards and Committees

The Chairman and members are appointed each year by the VBA Chairman. The Chairman is often re-appointed for one or two additional years. Members are often re-appointed for three years or longer. The rotation and geographic distribution of committee members is important.

Currently the VBA has committees in which member bankers from across the Commonwealth participate. The purpose of the committees is to provide input to the VBA on matters affecting the banking industry and the committee’s functional area of banking, provide input to VBA’s professional development division on training needs of their functional area, often resulting in VBA workshops, seminars, etc., provide a forum for exchange of ideas and for networking that will benefit each committee member and his/her bank, and identify possible legislative and/or regulatory issues on which the VBA should focus as the banking industry’s advocate.
