Tysons Corner, VA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
Eight VHB operatives (Chris Brockett, Betty Gillen, Kathy Harbold, Richard Johnson, Susie Kitchin, Chris Mortensen, John Saunders and Robert Wright) were among the 1,000 registered bankers in attendance at the U.S. Capitol, including almost 100 attendees from Virginia alone. The summit featured a number of Legislators who discussed regulations, tax exemptions, economic recovery and more. After the general session and lunch, our bank representatives boarded a shuttle to Capitol Hill where they then had a chance to meet with Federal Bank Regulators for further conversation and questions.
