Dear Neighbors,

Please join me on Tuesday, October 20, at 4:30 pm, for my second annual small business roundtable! Last year, we had a terrific meeting with lots of ideas and input from new entrepreneurs. This year, we’ll build on that success and focus on helping small businesses weather the COVID-19 pandemic—and what public and private resources can help.

We will talk about about steps the Legislature has taken to protect our small businesses during the pandemic, hear from credit unions about resources for small businesses, and take the opportunity to ask questions and collaborate on ideas to reduce barriers to success.

Due to COVID, the roundtable will be virtual this year.

Three guests from local credit unions will provide their expertise:

Dana Gray, Senior Vice President of Commercial and Business Services, BECU
Angelica Partida Doty, Small Business Development Manager, Seattle Credit Union
John Benner, Commercial Loan Officer, Verity Credit Union

RSVP at or contact with questions.

I hope to see you on Tuesday !

Sincerely yours,

Sen. Manka Dhingra
45th Legislative District
Deputy Majority Leader
