The “traditional” morning seminar — designed to meet the needs of bank executives, commercial lenders, accountants, attorneys, and economic development professionals — will provide a high-level overview of the latest program and general eligibility changes to SBA’s 504 and 7(a) programs, case study support of concepts, and updates on WBD affiliates, including our direct-lending efforts through the Lincoln Opportunity Fund.

Join us as we help you take your SBA knowledge and understanding to the next level!
