will bring together bankers and industry partners for sessions

These programs have been developed in consultation with a highly
respected group of banking industry experts. Your subscription to
this series will assist you with the responsibility to educate
those who serve on your Board.
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 2021 program will be offered in a virtual format with half days of sessions on April 27 and April 28.
Virginia Bankers Association and the American Bankers Association are excited to announce the 2nd annual virtual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit for bankers nationwide. This event is an important part of continuing a meaningful dialogue on fostering positive change in the industry.

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.
