How to Become an Endorsed Provider:

To become an Endorsed Provider of the VACB, a company must be a VACB Associate Member in good standing. Any Associate Member may request that a company product/service be considered for endorsement, by initiating such a request to the VACB Services Committee.

The Associate Member will then be required to provide detailed information in a number of areas, including (1) financial information, (2) marketing plans, and (3) benefits to the VACB membership and (4) benefits to the association. Additionally, the Associate Member will be asked to list the Virginia banks with which they are currently working.

Once this information has been reviewed, the Associate Member is given the opportunity to make an endorsement presentation to the Services Committee. The Services Committee consists of bankers who provide the broad knowledge and experience needed to evaluate various products and/or services. Committee members may request that VACB staff provide additional information with regard to the experience of a specific vendor working with other state associations.

After completing this due diligence process, the Services Committee then decides whether or not to make a recommendation to the VACB Board of Directors for approval. Contracts with the Endorsed Providers are reviewed annually by the Services Committee and the VACB. The endorsement is subject to withdrawal at any time if problems arise with the company's product or service and the necessary improvement is not forthcoming in a timely fashion. VACB endorsements focus on products and services that will make your community bank more profitable, more competitive and/or easier to manage. When considering products and services for your bank, be sure to think of VACB's Endorsed Products/Services first!
