On August 3, Davis Malm shareholder Tony Hewett participated in a panel at America East 2017, an annual conference for U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) lenders. Tony’s panel, “SBA 504: What Happens After Closing,” was designed to help the lead bank and SBA licensed certified development companies (CDCs) understand the SBA closing issues that could impact, or even delay, funding of an SBA loan. The panel discussed the SBA District Office approval process. Attendees also heard best practices from the panelists to help ensure a pleasant borrower experience during and after the settlement process.

America East is an annual conference that promotes networking and educational growth for new and seasoned SBA lenders.
