November 2021

Post Matt Bruning Heather Derflinger

In November 2021, nearly 275 bankers and legislators joined us for our series of virtual State Legislative Meetings. With the 2022 General Assembly Session rapidly approaching, this was an important opportunity to engage state policy makers on key banking issues.

Meetings took place for all six regions of the state - Northern Valley, Central/Southside Virginia, Southwest Virginia, Roanoke and New River Valley, Northern Virginia/Fredericksburg, Hampton Roads and Richmond/Northern Neck.

“Thanks to all the bank representatives for their service to the citizens of Virginia. In addition a special thank you to Maria and Matt for their leadership. I always appreciate these opportunities to hear from/be with our bankers.” – Delegate Betsy Carr
