Rural Illinois Small Business Forum

May 21, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

On May 21, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Illinois Small Business Development Center at Champaign County EDC, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation are co-sponsoring a rural small business lending forum in Effingham, IL.  The forum is designed for banks, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), other non-profit lenders, and government agencies.  It will provide the opportunity to discuss small business lending needs in small rural communities of under 10,000 in southeastern Illinois.

The success of the forum will depend on attendees actively participating in the discussion.  Please come prepared to share insights from your experience.

Roundtable discussions will focus on four topics:

  • Small business lending issues from a banker perspective
  • CDFI and loan fund services that support bank lending to small businesses
  • Bank/CDFI/small business development and lending partnerships
  • Impact State and Federal agency services have on small business development

Register online. The deadline to register by is Wednesday, May 15.
Please, no more than two attendees per institution.

If you have questions, please contact either Timothy Herwig at or Paul Ginger at
