Financing for Your Firm and Your Clients
September 16

At the Chapter House, 205 South Patrick Street, Alexandria 22314.

Organized by the Continuing Education Committee and the Small Firms Roundtable, this seminar will look at both residential and commercial real estate lending. Are they the same, but different? How and why do banks treat the two lending opportunities differently? Participants will examine fundamental information on real estate loans and consider how lending affects both architecture firms as businesses and their clients’ ability to build projects.

• Participants will examine both residential and commercial real estate loans and practices, considering the similarities and differences between the two, the funding sources for both and why banks treat the two lending opportunities differently.

• Participants will consider risk profiling by industry type and how purpose drives the lending product, looking at differences between owner occupied versus investment lending for both residential and commercial real estate.

• Participants will examine small business lending and circumstances where businesses might borrow money.

• Participants will consider the role of the Small Business Administration and what information and services they can provide to small firms.

This seminar is presented by Paul Flood, Vice President, Business Banking Relationship Manager at Essex Bank.

1.5 AIA CE credits. This presentation is free to attend. Lunch will be provided courtesy of Essex Bank.
