Free nonprofit seminar on May 12: Understanding Financials, a Bank View

MADISON, April 29, 2010: Registration is now open for the second event in First Business Bank’s four part 2010 nonprofit seminar series. The topic is Understanding Financials, a Bank View.

Credit. This word has dominated financial headlines for the past two years. Is credit more difficult to obtain now than it was three years ago? What does a bank look for when analyzing credit requests? Are the financials of nonprofit organizations viewed differently than those of "for profit" companies? First Business Financial Services’ CFO, Jim Ropella, and AVP of Credit, Ken James will present a comparative analysis and answer your questions.

This event will be held at First Business Bank - Madison in the University Research Park (near the intersection of Whitney Way and Mineral Point Road). Continental breakfast and networking starts at 7:30 a.m. The presentation will begin at 8:00 a.m. and the session will conclude by 9:30 a.m. Register by May 10 at www.firstbusiness.com/registration
