WBA Is Hiring
The Washington Bankers Association (WBA) is looking for an enthusiastic and efficient multi-tasker with event planning experience to serve as its Programs Administrator (PA). This non-exempt, full-time position supports the WBA’s fast-paced education department and, under the supervision of the EVP, is responsible for the planning and execution of all WBA seminars, conferences, committee meetings, and development programs. An organized “people person” will thrive in this position as the PA does serve as the main contact for all instructors, speakers, and committee members, handling schedules and logistics, booking venues, and soliciting sponsors, all while creating and implementing new event ideas.
