Access to Capital Workshop Planned


“Access to Capital” is the focus of a workshop coming up Thursday, September 15, in Chickasha.

The workshop is sponsored by the Small Business Development Center at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce and the Oklahoma Small Business Administration.

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

The second session (1-2:30 p.m.) will be focused to financial lending institutions that interact with the Oklahoma SBA. According to Doug Misak of the SBDC at SWOSU, this will be a perfect question and answer opportunity for experienced lenders or a great training session for new loan officers.

Staff 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 please call Misak at 580.774.7123.
