VBA Leadership Conference Attendee

“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.”

“My interactions with the bank are but one thread woven into the vast network of bank functions. Not merely a facility for lending and borrowing, banks are a hub for community growth. With small-business-friendly policies and generous lending programs, banks provide the stepping-stones for anyone to build their own financial success.”
