Family Business Center of Pioneer Valley to Host Dinner Forum June 21

HOLYOKE — The Family Business Center of Pioneer Valley will host a dinner forum called “What It Was Like to Sell Our Company” on Tuesday, June 21 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the Log Cabin in Holyoke. Attendees will hear the perspectives of four people who sold their business. They will discuss what they did right and wrong, what they thought and felt, what they wish they’d known, and what they want others to know.

The event will also include a presentation on “How to Obtain Commercial Credit Today” by James McGuinness, vice president of First Niagara Bank. He will discuss how banks and other creditors provide different sizes of loans, how loan parameters are different for various requests (working capital, equipment, property, etc.), how to prepare for a loan request, and when to seek assistance from an accountant, attorney, or others.
