TMA Central Texas Presents: Lender's Panel

11:30 AM - 1:00 PM CST
Norton Rose Fulbright
111 W. Houston Street Suite 1800 San Antonio, TX United States

UPDATE ON 3/13/2020:
“The Board of Directors of the TMA Central Texas Chapter wishes to thank everyone who had planned to attend our March 26, 2020 meeting. However, in light of the still-developing COVID-19 outbreak, the Board has decided, with profound regret, to cancel our March meeting. Although the lenders’ panel would have proved both fascinating and successful, the health of our chapter’s members and guests must remain our first priority. At this time, the Board expects to reschedule the lenders’ panel for one of our regular meeting dates later this year. Once that decision has been made, all TMA guests and members will receive email notice of the new date and time. Until then, the TMA Board wishes everyone well, and we look forward to seeing you again in the very near future.”

Please join us Thursday, March 26, 2020, for a special lender's panel featuring Faizan Ali, Director, Regions Business Capital, Sarah Cernosek, Senior Vice President and Senior Credit Risk Officer, Frost Bank and David Phillips, Senior VP of Central Texas at Far West Capital.  We hope you will join us for this peek into how lenders evaluate business opportunities and for an update on the current lending climate.
