Small-biz loan programs topic of October webinar by NCUA, SBA

A webinar to help credit unions learn about small-business lending programs of the Small Business Administration (SBA) will be held Oct. 16 and hosted jointly by the SBA and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the credit union regulator announced Wednesday.

Speakers Oct. 16 will include William Briggs, senior advisor in the SBA’s Office of Capital Access, and Dianna L. Seaborn, director of the SBA Office of Financial Assistance. The two will provide a brief history of the SBA; SBA benefits to the borrower and to the credit union; an overview of SBA programs; and how offering small business loans may align with the credit union’s mission.

Titled “The Big Picture of SBA Lending for Credit Unions—Part 1,” the Oct. 16 webinar is slated to begin at 2 p.m. ET and will run for about one hour, the agency said. Registration is open now (register here).

NCUA said this will be first of two webinars hosted by the agencies.
