Texas Regional Groups

Brazos Valley Bankers Association

The Brazos Valley Bankers Association [BVBA] is a regional association for bankers living and working in the southeast region of Texas, between Austin and Houston.  There are no geographic restrictions, and all bankers are welcome.  However, most of the groups meetings and activities take place in a central location like Brenham. 

The BVBA’s primary goal is to create a closer relationship between all the member bankers, both from a social and business standpoint.  The group also offers college scholarships to the children of bankers.  Meetings are held quarterly, usually somewhere around Brenham.  A speaker or educational opportunity is provided for the members at most of these meetings, and all meetings have a social function as well.
