GBA Bank Counsel Board

The Bank Counsel Section was established for two purposes:
  1. To determine unfilled banking-related educational needs that exist among counsel who represent GBA members
  2. To determine how the GBA can more effectively connect with and engage the large number of bank counsel who represent GBA members.
The Section is governed by the Board of Directors listed below.  Members of the Board  primarily focus on hosting an annual conference and assisting the association on legislation, regulations or litigation in which the association becomes involved. Members of the Board are appointed by the GBA chairman.
