District Legislative Meetings for Responsible Lending

Meeting Description:
Online merchant cash advances dwarf SBA lending.  Many times these online 'loans' will tank a business. CAMEO is launching an educational campaign to inform California's small business leaders and elected officials on what good capital looks like. We're asking all of our members to hold district meetings with their California state representatives during the March 18-25 break. We'll follow up with meetings in Sacramento at our annual meeting. This is an issue that your clients need to know about, whether you are a lender or business assistance provider.
Personal visits are highly effective ways of helping legislators understand your position or program. Legislators welcome visits from constituents. They want you involved, even though they are busy people. Arranging these meetings is relatively easy and the meetings themselves are inexpensive and convenient. This webinar will walk you through logistics of setting up the meeting, how to prepare, what to do afterwards, and ground you in the Small Business Borrower's Bill of Rights.
