Registered attendees will then be bussed to the Capitol at 8:30 a.m. for meetings with the Senate President, Speaker of the House, Clerks, and Banking Committee chairs. 

Beginning at 9:30 a.m., attendees will have the opportunity to meet with their elected members of the legislature or attend select committee meetings. The group will then return to the Marriott for lunch. The WVBankers Board of Directors and Future/Emerging Leaders will meet during the afternoon.

Held in conjunction with WVBankers Legislative Day, our annual legislative day reception will be held 5:30 - 7:00 p.m., at the Charleston Marriott. Historically, approximately 150+ bankers, legislators, and guests attend this event throughout the evening.
