Grab your map and join us on a journey of learning and discovery on the Pathways to Connect & Protect 2021. Choose your destination (track) and hit the road (Zoom). At each pit stop (session) in your journey, you will connect with other travelers (attendees) and tour guides (industry experts) and uncover new ideas, trends and developments in banking. All roads lead to your final destination – an in-person (COVID rules permitting) block party at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in September. There will be food, music, business sessions and the opportunity to see your friends and colleagues in person from a safe physical distance.
Through the use of highly qualified instructors and a challenging
curriculum, the VBA School of Bank Management is designed to
provide a multi-dimensional educational experience in banking.
Upon completion of three one-week summer sessions and eight home
study problems, students will have developed a range of skills
that should both enhance current performance and qualify them as
candidates for advancement.
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. 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.
This conference is designed for emerging banking leaders and members of the Virginia Bankers Association Emerging Bank Leaders (EBL) group. This conference will give Emerging Bank Leaders the opportunity to share ideas and network with peers from across the state. You do not have to be an EBL member to attend.
The VBA is committed to providing banks with the resources needed to build and develop strong teams of banking professionals. This past summer, five banks participated in the virtual VBA Internship Program across the Commonwealth, hosting 27 students from different colleges and universities. Based on the feedback we received from the interns at the end of the summer, 100% said that the internship made them more interested in the banking industry.
