The head of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association, the commonwealth's major banking trade association, announced today he will step down from the organization next year.

James Biery said in a statement that he plans to retire Nov. 30, 2013, as president and CEO. Biery has been with the PBA for 37 years — 22 of those as CEO.

"It has been a long, great ride," Biery said. "I have been very fortunate to have worked with some of the most principled and talented men and women in the nation to shape and influence banking policy. Bankers are the cornerstones of our communities and our commonwealth and it has been an honor to work alongside them."

Biery has led the organization through membership growth and the addition of a for-profit subsidiary, expansive product offerings and educational opportunities.

The association's board of directors has authorized a formal search committee to find Biery's successor.
