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.
The responsibility and liability of the Bank Director is ever
increasing. Providing your Directors with training to help them
through the complexities of today’s banking environment is
critical. The Virginia Bankers Association is offering a series
of monthly, 30–minute training modules geared to your directors.
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.
To be held on June 19-22, the 2022 Annual Convention will take place at the Marriott Resort Virginia Beach Oceanfront and The Historic Cavalier Resort & Beach Club. This year’s Convention will combine a great lineup of speakers on timely topics and networking with bankers and industry providers.
This event, brought to you by five states (DE, MD, PA, VA and WV) will bring together bankers and industry partners for sessions with nationally recognized speakers providing relevant and timely content geared specifically to bank CEOs and other senior leaders.
VBA and the American Bankers Association partnered to launch our first-ever virtual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit for bankers on November 6, 2020, and held a second Summit on May 20, 2021. These events were an important part of continuing a meaningful dialogue on fostering positive change in the industry. The value-packed programs helped bankers cultivate a network of peers to share DEI leading practices and explore new opportunities and initiatives for their own institutions. The goal of these events was to equip bankers from 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.
