"The focus of our publication is to promote and support community banking in Virginia. We know that community banks are the backbone of and economic catalysts of the communities we serve, and we cannot allow the regulatory and congressional challenges we face to minimize our importance. Nor can we allow these challenges to diminish our desire and responsibility to ensure that our communities and our customers have access to the banking services and financing they all need to thrive."

-Steve Yeakel

President & CEO
