SBA Administrator Mills joins GAC lineup
WASHINGTON (1/08/10)—U.S Small Business Administrator Karen Mills has agreed to address the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA’s) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) during the Tues Feb. 23 general session. Mills, who became the head of the Small Business Administration (SBA) in April last year, has during her tenure voiced an eagerness to increase her agency’s cooperation with credit unions and small banks as a means of increasing small business activity. CUNA has a longstanding effort to address with the SBA issues of complex applications and high fees that can act as a roadblock to credit union participation to 7 (a) and 504 guaranteed loan programs. Mills joins a growing roster of heavy-hitter speakers signed onto address CUNA’s GAC. Other speakers include: House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), that committee's ranking Republican member Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), senior members of the committee, Reps. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) and Ed Royce (R-Calif.), and National Credit Union Administration Chairman Debbie Matz, among many others. As noted in News Now’s Jan. 7 edition, there has been a deadline extension to Jan. 27 for reserving hotel accommodations through CUNA's Housing Bureau.
