EAST PROVIDENCE/SEEKONK ROTARY CLUB

TO HOST “ASK A BANKER” EVENT

Area businesses, public invited to attend Zoom event

featuring branch managers from local financial institutions

 

 

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I.  (December 28, 2020):  Has COVID-19 forever changed the way we bank? What are the key trends emerging in banking for 2021? Is the use of cash a thing of the past or are we fast becoming a cashless economy? How can business owners get their PPP loans forgiven? Will mortgage rates stay low in the New Year?

 

Thse questions and more will be answered by a panel of local banking experts at the upcoming “Ask A Banker” event, hosted by The Rotary Club of East Providence/Seekonk. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm and will feature the following financial industry professionals:  Scott Haggerty, assistant vice president/branch manager of The Washington Trust Company in Rumford; Stephen Henderson, assistant vice president/branch manager of Navigant Credit Union in Riverside; and David Kent, vice president/banking office manager of Webster Bank in Riverside. The event will be moderated by William Francis, financial advisor with Edward Jones Investments in Riverside.

 

 

“We are so fortunate to have all of these professionals as members of our Rotary Club, and also as members of the East Providence Area Chamber of Commerce,” states Betty Galligan, president of The Rotary Club of East Providence/Seekonk, owner of Newberry Public Relations and Marketing, Inc. of Riverside, and past chair of the Chamber’s board of directors. “Their collective knowledge is a great asset not only to our Club and Chamber members, but to any business owner, accountant, financial officer, mortgage lender, or anyone who wishes to tap their expertise on banking topics by attending our event. How often can you just pick up the phone or meet with a busy banker these days to ask them a question? Their time is so valuable, and we are honored that they are participating in this panel discussion to help inform the community at large.”

 

Registration deadline for the event is Monday, January 25, 2021.
