SBA’s Illinois District Office and Illinois SBDC Network are holding a series of free forums to update commercial lenders on agency programs and services. Topics will include SOP 50 10 changes, new franchise review processes, new equity injection requirements, and upcoming SBA training opportunities. SBA staff, 504 corporations, SBDC representatives, and SBA microlenders will present at the event.
Registration is required to attend the forums, so that each lender attending can receive an information packet containing material from all presenters. Reasonable arrangements for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. Contact the Illiniois Small Business Development Center at Lincoln Land Community College to make arrangements. The forums have been developed in cooperation with the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, and the Illinois Small Business Development Centers as a service to Illinois small businesses.
