“I’ve been to several seminars/classes at the VBA over the years, and this one was the best overall. Karen has a great sense of humor, and she really knows her stuff. She did a fantastic job keeping everyone engaged. I learned quite a lot about supervising with intentionality and keeping my team engaged.”
“It was a wonderful networking and teambuilding experience, along with the financial industry updates that will keep you relevant with what’s going on in the industry and in your field of expertise.”

“You have to experience the environment for yourself in order to receive the full benefit. It is my desire for every woman to be able to attend and leave with the sense of community & empowerment that is developed and created by this conference.”
“It’s rare, in our industry, that you have a group full of women together to network and grow our careers – you can’t help but feel empowered in that room and when you leave.”
“The VBA is very passionate about the next generation of leaders in Virginia banks. It is refreshing to have an organization that prides itself on taking such an interest in so many future leaders.”
“Every time I leave a VBA event, I am excited to come back to work and share what I’ve learned. Even if my bank can’t send me in the future, I see it as something I would pay for because it would be an investment in myself. I’m hoping next year others can attend as well.”
