Bringing SBA Lending Training to YOU in 2020

image21

This year, America West focuses on removing barriers in order to train as many lenders in the region as possible.  America West is going on the road!  In 2020, our mini training summits will bring our unique experiential training to multiple cities around the region to reach all levels of community SBA lenders. Topics will focus not only on technical requirements but also on regionally relevant needs such as rural lending, the growing hemp industry, and others as dictated by the local district needs.

Who Should Attend & What Topics to Expect

Whether you are an emerging or experienced 7(a) or 504 lender, lender service provider or credit union, this training is for you.  Workshops will utilize real-life case studies with an engaging and interactive hands-on approach.  While there may be some overlap among locations, our goal is to provide an authentically unique experience relevant to the needs of each specific location.  Topics may include:

  • Why SBA Lending - Advantages for Lenders
  • Changes in Rural Lending
  • Breaking down 7(a) Lending
  • How to Build an Effective SBA Lending Team
