“The new name more solidly aligns the insurance agency subsidiary with The Virginia Bar Association,” VBAI president of the board Kenneth Hein said in a statement. “Many lawyers missed or didn’t know that VBAI was formed by and is part of The Virginia Bar Association, even after the insurance website at vba.org/vbai started being managed by the VBA. With our new name and logo, now that is clear.”
