About America East / Networking and Training for SBA Lenders

Partner-SBA-Logo

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.

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. There were more than 300 attendees at the 2015 conference in Baltimore, MD, and the 2016 event is poised to be even more successful.
