Business loan workshop offered
As part of a small business series, the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service and the UAF Community and Technical College will host a workshop March 6 on how to get a business loan.
The workshop will meet from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Fairbanks and by videoconference in Delta Junction, Soldotna, Bethel and Thorne Bay. The workshop is designed to take the fear of the unknown out of the loan process and will explore nontraditional and traditional funding options for small businesses. Participants will examine a typical loan application, the loan closing process and ongoing loan requirements.
The instructors are Russell Talvi, the Fairbanks Small Business Development Center director, and Paul Bauer, a vice president of business lending at Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union. The cost is $25. Videoconference participants may register online at http://bit.ly/ces-workshops/, and Fairbanks participants may call 455-2858 to register. The workshop will meet in the boardroom of the Johansen Expressway branch of the Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union in Fairbanks. See a flier with videoconference locations at www.uaf.edu/ces/.
