Continuing the tradition of assembling as a united banking
industry for our annual meeting since 1893, we invite you to join
us at the Virginia Bankers Association’s 128th Annual Convention
June 20-23, 2021 at the Belmond Charleston Place.
The Directors’ Symposium, co-sponsored by the Virginia Association of Community Banks, provides bank board members with current data, thought-provoking industry trends and networking opportunities with other directors and regulators. The program is designed to benefit both new directors and seasoned veterans on the Board.
In November 2020, VBA and the American Bankers Association partnered to launch their first-ever virtual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit for bankers nationwide. This event was an important part of continuing a meaningful dialogue on fostering positive change in the industry. The value-packed program will help bankers cultivate a network of peers to share DEI leading practices and explore new opportunities and initiatives for their own institutions. The goal? To equip bankers all over the country with tools to mitigate systemic biases and foster greater inclusion for those disadvantaged by age, race, disability, sexual orientation, gender or other identity factors.
As part of our overall diversity and inclusion efforts, the VBA has created the Women’s Mentorship Program to assist our member banks with preparing the talented women within your banks for future senior leadership positions.
