VBA Banker Day is your chance to join bankers from across the Commonwealth to advocate on behalf of our industry before your elected state representatives. Virtual Banker Day took place on January 12, 2021.

While we could not be in-person this year meeting with General Assembly members at their offices, attendees had the chance to join bankers from across the Commonwealth to hear directly from state policymakers and learn about the issues impacting banking in the 2021 General Assembly session.

Our 2021 program included:

  • Keynote remarks and a session preview from Secretary of Commerce and Trade
    Brian Ball
  • A legislative leaders panel discussion featuring House Majority Leader Charniele Herring (D-Alexandria) and Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Ryan McDougle (R-Hanover)
  • A VBA issues briefing
  • An election analysis and preview from Dr. Daniel Palazzolo, Professor of Political Science and Associate Dean at University of Richmond – Department of Political Science
