Her interesting and informative presentation to Thrive Lake County will offer an update to the contents of an August 2012 report released by the California Financial Opportunities Roundtable, “Access to Capital” (http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/Reports/CA-CalFOR.pdf). This report was created as a result of forty-three Town Hall forums held throughout California where participants offered many recommendations on what was needed to create jobs, grow our economy and develop sustainable communities.
