Board of Governors, Washington, D.C.
Addressing the Financing Needs of Small Businesses, a forum organized by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, will be held July 12, 2010 at the Board's Martin Building at 20th and C Streets, N.W. in Washington, D.C.
This event will provide a platform for gathering information and perspectives to help the Federal Reserve, and other small business stakeholders, address the immediate and longer-term credit needs of small businesses. It will gather a national audience of key decision makers, including leaders from community development financial institutions, banks, small businesses and trade groups, and government agencies as panelists and participants.
The convening follows a series of more than forty regional small business meetings hosted by the Federal Reserve System's Community Affairs Offices that took place around the country and this past February. Meeting participants discussed a wide range of small business credit access issues, including private sector small business finance and examination issues, public and nonprofit sector roles, and the improved coordination between small business credit and support services providers. The forum provides an opportunity to share key findings and recommendations from this series of regional meetings and to identify ways to reduce credit gaps to ensure that creditworthy small businesses have the financing they need to grow
Key decision makers, community development financial institution leaders, banks, small business and trade groups, and government agencies.
