VCC President Jane Henderson
VCC has much to be proud of and key accomplishments were presented that day. Most notably, VCC opened a subsidiary community development bank in 2008, the Community Capital Bank of Virginia. Henderson reported that the bank turned a profit in its second year, a notable accomplishment especially in the current economy. On another note of expansion and growth, Henderson explained that VCC now supports three primary lines of business: Lending, Savings, and Advisory Services. For more details on VCC accomplishments, see slides from the Annual Luncheon below.
Rounding out the day, Chris Ernst, from the Center for Creative Leadership, shared some high points of the morning’s educational session and a compelling tale of innovative partnering from his latest book, Boundary Spanning Leadership, an appropriate reflection on the VCC tagline: “Let’s do more, together.”
