Access to Capital Workshop Planned April 21


An “Access to Capital” workshop will be held Thursday, April 21, at the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce office in Chickasha.

The free workshop is being hosted by the Oklahoma Small Business Development Center located on the SWOSU campus in Weatherford, the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce and the Oklahoma Small Business Administration.

The workshop will be divided into two sections. The morning session (10 to 11:30 a.m.) will be open to the general public and will cover various loan assistance programs available under the SBA as well as how to apply for assistance.

The second session will be focused to financial lending institutions that interact with the Oklahoma SBA. Doug Misak, director of the center at SWOSU, said this will be a perfect question and answer opportunity for experienced lenders or a great training session for new loan officers. This session starts at 1 p.m. and continues until 2:30 p.m.

Staff members from the Oklahoma SBA will present both sessions which will be held at the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce, located at 221 Chickasha Ave. in Chickasha. The workshop is free but space is limited so please register by calling either the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce at 405-224-0787 or the Weatherford OSBDC office at 580.774.7095. For additional information, call Misak at 580.774.7123.
