Last year's event was such a success that we are bringing it back even bigger and better. Since our focus is on an engaging learning experience, we've rebranded the event to a "Summit" rather than a "Conference".
This annual West Coast summit will focus on training for all levels of SBA lending, including those interested in getting their feet wet in the SBA lending space. Experience cost effective, practical training for your entire team from respected industry experts. The agenda will include workshops and sessions on basic, intermediate and management material for 7(a) and 504 lenders, lender service providers and credit unions. See a list of last year's Workshop Topics below.
This conference is ideal for lenders in California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and neighboring states that want to become higher volume lenders. We've got educational topics to cover 7(a), Community Advantage, 504, Secondary Market and more.
U.S. SBA Administrator, Linda McMahon provided our closing keynote last year. Stay tuned for this year's opening and closing keynote announcements and register early before we sell out.
America West is unlike any training event or conference you've attended (See How Here)! Our in-depth experiential training for both 7(a) and 504 lenders uses real-life case studies and interactive hands-on approaches to engage participants in our workshops and mini training sessions facilitated by experts in the industry.
Along with our general sessions, you will have the option to attend between 4 different workshops and will receive tangible takeaways to build your knowledge base and nurture best practices and processes, while maintaining a high level of compliance.
