For the fifth year, Virginia Bankers Association and Yount, Hyde & Barbour, P.C. are partnering to host three peer group meetings. The purpose of these exchanges is to provide a platform to network, find answers, solutions and best practices to common issues and problems.
Meetings will begin with formal presentations on timely issues and, following the educational sessions, attendees will engage in a roundtable discussion over lunch about current issues, challenges and opportunities.
