2024 Burgers with Bruce Recap
April-May 2024

Post Chandler Owdom

Nearly 200 bankers joined us for our 2024 Burgers with Bruce series. Each event included an industry update from VBA President and CEO Bruce Whitehurst followed by a “Leadership Dialogues” panel that consists of a member of a VBA board, as well as a banker who has been involved in the Emerging Bank Leaders group throughout his or her career.
