The America East Conference promotes networking and educational growth for new and seasoned SBA lenders by focusing on new SBA programs and initiatives to support exporting, aiding an underserved and thriving community, and providing training on a variety of SBA policies and procedures.  Download the Conference Info Package Here.

SBA lenders from Maine to Florida on the Eastern Seaboard come to the America East Conference to meet with top SBA officials and build their network of SBA program and industry experts. The conference rotates among various cities in the northeast, and over the past several years, our conference has been held in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston, and National Harbor/Washington DC. Each year, the conference has grown and continues to draw more than 50 sponsors and exhibitors and nearly 400 attendees from more than 100 organizations.

This year’s conference will be held at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT.  Since 1992, Foxwoods Resort Casino has offered guests The Wonder of It All as the premier resort destination in the Northeast. As the largest resort casino in North America, Foxwoods offers a vast array of gaming in seven casinos; AAA Four-Diamond hotels, restaurants from gourmet to quick service, world-renowned spas, award-winning golf, state-of-the-art theaters and exclusive retailers.  Download the Conference Info Package Here for more details.
