Board of Directors

The GBA Board of Directors sets policy and long-range goals for the Association.

The Executive Committee is made up of the Chairman, Chairman Elect, Vice Chairman, Secretary Treasurer and Immediate Past Chairman, all of whom are elected statewide. The Board appoints a President and Chief Executive Officer who serves at the pleasure of the Board and is a member of the Executive Committee.

Each of the three GBA Groups annually elects one member to serve a three-year term. Each year, the incoming GBA Chairman of the Board appoints an At Large member to the Board to serve a three-year term.

There also are three designated positions on the Board: Leadership GBA Chairman, GBA Services, Inc. Chairman, and Community Bankers Committee Chairman. Each serves a one-year term.

Associate members elect a representative to the Board who serves a three-year term. And, the Association’s General Counsel attends all Board meetings but does not serve as a member.
