WVBANKERS 127th ANNUAL CONVENTION
The Greenbrier Resort, White Sulphur Springs
July 26 - 28, 2020

The 2020 WVBankers Annual Convention will be here before you know it, although different than those of recent times and memories. As you might expect, due to COVID-19 our attendance is down this year but we will have the same quality of speakers, education sessions, etc. that one is accustomed to experiencing at a WVBankers Annual Convention.

General Session speakers include ABA President/ CEO Rob Nichols; Jack Shaw, Innovation and Change Management Strategist; and Ron Insana, CNBC Senior Analyst, Financial Journalist. 

Monday and Tuesday morning concurrent breakout sessions will feature presentations from BKD, LLP, Bowles Rice and Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough.
