1 BBN Brevard Business News Vol. 29 No. 39 September 26, 2011 A Weekly Space Coast Business Magazine Community Bank takes part in program to help small firms gain capital By Ken Datzman MERRITT ISLAND Capital is the lifeblood of a small business. There is nothing more important to their long term survival than working capital. While large companies around America are hoarding billions of dollars in cash, mainly because of a lack of confidence in the market, small businesses find themselves in a credit squeeze with the vice grip tightening. Without small business growth, communities can come to a standstill. Community Bank of the South, whose core customer is the small business operator, aims to help stimulate the economy in Brevard County through participation in a government program that encourages banks to increase commercial lending to small companies in their communities. Community Bank of the South has signed on to take part in the U.S. Department of Treasury s Small Business Lending Fund, a voluntary program that makes billions of dollars available to banks Please see Community Bank, page 19 BBN photo Adrienne B. Roth Community Bank of the South is a participant in the Department of Treasury s Small Business Lending Fund. The initiative encourages community banks to increase lending to qualified small businesses, helping those companies expand their operations and create jobs. The bank team includes Bill Taylor, CEO, and Nancy Brower, vice president. They are at the Merritt Island office. Women in car sales talk about benefits of working in a man s world By Stephanie Hoops Scripps Howard Service In the late 1990s on a snowy day in Chicago, sociologist Helene Lawson was car shopping when she spotted a woman on the lot, trudging around in five inch heels. I d never seen a woman selling cars before, especially at that time, she said. I thought, what do women know about cars? Lawson, who didn t learn to drive until she was married, was so intrigued by women who had decided to make a career of selling cars that she studied them and authored Ladies on the Lot: Women, Car across the nation in an effort to jump start job creation and business expansion. A wave of capital has flowed into the Small Business Lending Fund and community banks, in small batches, are stepping up to capitalize on the opportunity to make available the money in their markets. Community Bank of the South, whose holding company is CBOS Bankshares Inc., is one of only a small number of banks in Central Florida approved to take part in the lending program. This is a program to help stimulate the economy, said William Bill Taylor, founding president and chief executive officer of Community Bank of the South. The Treasury has set aside $30 billion as part of the Small Business Lending Fund. We are one of the banks that has been awarded $3.9 million to lend. The goal is to help the local economy through lending to credit worthy small businesses, Taylor said. Privately held small businesses say access to capital is the No. 1 policy option Sales and the Pursuit of the American dream. At the time the book was published in 2000, car sales were a man s scene. The work environment was peppered with after work partying and little tolerance for mood swings. The women Lawson interviewed were in it for the money and coped by conforming. They d start to talk the way men did to fit in, she said. Today, the car sales business is still a man s scene. Women hold just 4.9 percent of jobs in new car sales and 3.6 percent of jobs in used sales, according to CNW Marketing Research. You need to have thick skin and learn to let workplace conversations go in one ear and out the other, said Kimberly Pastucka, who s been selling cars for a little more than a year at Thousand Oaks (Calif.) Toyota. PRESORTED STANDARD US POSTAGE PAID BREVARD BUSINESS NEWS, INC. It definitely is more a man s business, she said. When you think of a traditional car salesman, you think of a man, not a woman, and it s still like that today. Pastucka studied teaching but could not Please see Car Sales, page 16

Washington Ave. No reservations are required. This free event is a collaborative partnership between Parrish Medical Center, Brevard Alzheimer s Foundation (sponsor of Joe s Club), Benton House and the Alzheimer s Foundation of America (AFA). The partnering agencies are working together to provide the community with information, education, resources and support to those affected by, or caregivers for, loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer s disease. The Brain Game Challenge is designed for people of all ages, abilities and interests. Attendees can participate in puzzles, logic and memory games. Educational materials on how to make healthier lifestyle choices will also be available. It is never too early or too late to build up good health habits, including brain health, said Eric Hall, AFA president and chief executive officer. This event is designed to show that the path to successful aging can be both educational and entertaining. AFA developed the Brain Game Challenge around the concept that flexing and stretching your brain, just like flexing and stretching other parts of your body, is critical for a successful aging workout. So much so that experts suggest that people of all ages exercise both their brains and bodies on a daily basis. Research suggests that regular mental workouts may help reduce the risk of Alzheimer s disease or other memory disorders by enhancing cognitive reserve, stimulating growth of new brain cells, and maintaining or strengthening connections between brain cells. Currently, Alzheimer s disease, which results in loss of memory and other intellectual functions, affects as many as 5.1 million Americans. The incidence is expected to increase dramatically in line with the nation s aging population; advanced age is the greatest known risk factor. In Brevard County, 20 percent of the population is over age 65, a higher percentage than any other Florida county or the U.S. in general. Alzheimer s disease is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. Daffodil Gala raises $52,000 for SCCF More than 240 people attended the recent Space Coast Cancer Foundation s fifth annual Daffodil Gala, which raised more than $52,000. The event was presented by Vitas Innovative Hospice Care and hosted at the Holiday Inn Viera. The program honored Kathy Skalet and Alice Alderman as Volunteers of the Year and Dawn Faust as Cancer Survivor of the Year. The event included a silent auction, live music and dancing. The net proceeds from the gala will fund the purchase, maintenance and operational costs for a patient transport van. This service will ensure that patients in need will have a ride to and from their appointments. The Space Coast Cancer Center Board of Directors includes Dr. Richard Levine, Linda Bradley, Tina Norman, Eddie Norman, Harry Jones, Melissa Flammio Clark, Nancy Payne, Grace Vista, Linda Miedema, Ph.D., and John Riordan.

4 BBN EDITORIAL Scientists discover there is more than one way to make a brain By John Pastor Seemingly simple animals such as the snail and squid have ransacked the genetic toolkit over the last half billion years to find different ways to build complex brains, nervous systems and shells, according to an international team of researchers, including a neuroscientist with the University of Florida Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience. Using genomics and computational approaches, the scientists have reconstructed the evolutionary history of the entire phylum Molluscsa, which includes more than 100,000 living species, ranging from giant squid to microscopic marine worm like creatures. One of the surprising outcomes of the study, recently published online in the journal Nature, suggests that the formation of a complex brain in mollusks has independently occurred at least four times during the course of evolution a finding that may prove useful to regenerative medicine scientists trying to develop new ways to help BBN Brevard BusinessNews 4300 Fortune Place, Suite D West Melbourne, FL (321) fax (321) BrevardBusinessNews.com PUBLISHER Adrienne B. Roth EDITOR Ken Datzman people with degenerative brain diseases. Nature did many experiments for us over the past 500 million years, using different molecular tools to build complex brains by independently centralizing smaller neuronal structures, said Leonid Moroz, a member of the department of neuroscience with the UF College of Medicine. The octopus, for example, is very intelligent. It can learn by watching, and it has one of the most complicated brains of any animal without a backbone. And it evolved completely independently from us, using different genes, gene regulators and, in part, different neuronal signaling molecules. By looking at the genomic data collected from the various classes and families of mollusks, the scientists were able to better understand the relationships between aplacophorans, which are worm like creatures; gastropods, which include slugs and snails; cephalopods, such as octopuses and squids; and a variety of other shell producing creatures. Researchers extracted RNAs from dozens of marine organisms for deep genomewide sequencing and backed that information with all publicly banked data, revealing for the first time a blueprint of the molluscan life history on Earth. Every major lineage of mollusk was represented in the analysis except for a class called monoplacophorans, which are tiny, shelled animals that live at the bottom of the deep sea and are too scarce to be captured. Kenneth Halanych and graduate student Kevin Kocot of the department of biological sciences at Auburn University led the computational analysis, while the gene sequencing was led by Moroz at UF s Whitney Lab. Surprisingly, cephalopod mollusks octopuses and squid that are known for intelligence and considered primates of the seas represent one of the earliest branches of shelled mollusks, while simpler mollusks such as clams and oysters were a later branch, Moroz said. The study helps resolve many conflicting hypotheses constructed in the past 100 years regarding the evolutionary tracks of these animals, according to Rhanor Gillette, a professor of molecular and integrative physiology, and of neuroscience, at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, who was not involved in the research. Gillette has studied mollusks and their nervous systems for more than 40 years, focusing on how they make decisions about defense, reproduction and predation by analyzing their behavior and neural circuitry. The researchers put the gastropods snails and slugs into a sister group with bivalves clams and oysters which have far less complex nervous systems, Gillette said. I was under the impression that snails were closer to more complex cephalopods, like squid and octopus, but now we find they are more closely related to the oyster. That s quite an unusual fisherman s platter. What is of extreme interest will be to find out the nature of the basic neuronal circuits that different animals use to make the cost benefit decisions of their daily lives, such as finding food or defending themselves, Gillette said. There is likely to be a simple, core function for decision making in neuronal circuitry that has evolved in tandem in mollusks and much more complex mammals, including humans, despite their remarkable differences in lifestyle, biochemistry and body structure. Moroz said the discovery says much about the value of using genomic approaches to reveal the true diversity of life. Some of these organisms, including a sea slug called Aplysia and the octopuses, have turned out to be good biomedical models for understanding learning, memory and disease in people. It is important to establish ancestral relationships between organisms using genomic information, and to understand why this very successful group resulted in so many different forms and unique biochemical and behavioral adaptations. Moroz s graduate student Mathew Citarella and molecular biologist Andrea Kohn, of the Whitney Laboratory were on the research team, as were scientists from the University of Bergen in Norway and the Johannes Gutenberg University in Germany.

10 King Center for the Performing Arts has wide capability as a venue hosting corporate functions, social events, business meetings handles everything for the gathering, from food to the linens By Ken Datzman The Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts has long been known in the region as a showcase for entertainment. Over the past two and half decades, the King Center has brought to the community many top performers across a broad section of the entertainment world. But what many people in Brevard County are not fully aware of is the King Center s capability in another arena that is, hosting everything from corporate functions and business meetings to social events, including weddings, homecomings, fund raisers, and holiday parties put on by businesses and organizations. We have provided catering services ever since the King Center opened, said Donna Hanley, the King Center catering director, a position she s held since There are a lot of people in the community who are not familiar with the catering side of the operation. I hear it often, I didn t realize the facility was available on a rental basis for meetings, weddings, bar mitzvahs, etc. We have a unique venue for these types of events, especially for the business and corporate markets. Open to the public for booking, the King Center has a number of venues that can be rented, including: THE MAIN STAGE. The King Center s Main Stage features more than 6,000 square feet. Hanley says it offers a different perspective and is a unique place for large gatherings. We can seat up to 300 people. A lot of times we use the King Center lobby to host a cocktail party before we take the guests onto the stage for the main function. People love our Main Stage. It s a showcase. THE ROTUNDA. This is another unique space within the facility. The skylights reflect a garden like setting that is perfect for receptions and meetings. We can seat up to 250 people. This is where a banquet was held for Florida State University coach Bobby Bowden. And FSU s new head coach, James Jimbo Fisher, was here, too, for an FSU event. THE STUDIO THEATRE. Also referred to as the Black Box, this area, which can seat up to 180 people for a reception or a presentation, offers a dramatic setting and is equipped with theatrical lighting for special events, she said. The Black Box space can be configured a number of ways to accommodate various groups. The theatrical lighting is a very special feature and creates an interesting atmosphere. There is nothing like it in the county, Hanley said. The Main Stage, The Rotunda, and The Studio Theatre all are available on a rental basis for meetings, corporate functions, and events. The Harris Art Gallery, in the King Center lobby, is open to guests with tickets during all Main Stage performances. Through the support of Melbourne based Harris Corp., area artists have the ability to exhibit their work in the gallery. Before King Center concerts, ticketholders are also welcomed to take part in the Picnic on the Patio, a new attraction for the facility. We sell grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Patrons can come ahead of time and have something to eat and drink before heading to their seats for the concert. This new venue is being well received by the community. It s a great place to socialize. Tables are set up to accommodate our patrons. Hanley said King Center Catering is a full service operation, in that it manages all aspects of any social function held at the facility. She said the King Center, which has a liquor license, works with a number of area caterers, including Green Turtle Market and Creative Catering by the Farinas. We take care of everything, from the linen rentals to the food and beverage. It s a seamless operation for the party booking the space. As the fourth quarter has begun and there are only 13 weeks until the end of the year, Hanley said now is the time for businesses and organizations to start thinking about booking their holiday parties and events at the King Center. Call for available dates. We re hoping for a good holiday season and to close the year on a strong note, she added. Catering sales are expected to increase by 6 percent this year over 2010, according to the National Restaurant Association. Business has been steady. Coming up, we have three homecomings on the books, a Women s Center fund raiser, and the annual meeting of the Economic Development Commission of Florida s Space Coast. In general, Hanley s business unit oversees all the food and beverage services provided at the King Center, including meals for the entertainers. We feed the performers, from load in to load out, and their crews. Hanley says performing artists have it all spelled out in their catering contract including the type of food and drink the King Center provides them. The rock and roll artists of yesterday prefer organic selections, she said. They request healthy food, processed a certain way. I think if you are traveling on the road every night going to a different venue, eating calorie rich food is not a good idea. King Center Catering also serves the artists in their dressing room before they go on stage for their show. They are very specific about their pre show selections and the supplies they want in their dressing room. Entertainers request that everything from vitamin water to ice cream be stocked in their dressing rooms ahead of the concert. Hanley says she works closely with colleague Tim Freese, the King Center s managing director and technical director. He advances the show and gives me the catering portion. BBN photo Adrienne B. Roth Donna Hanley, a former dental hygienist, is catering director for the King Center on the BCC campus in Melbourne. The facility has a number of venues available for rental to businesses and organizations to host special events. The venues include The Main Stage, The Studio Theatre, and The Rotunda. A former dental hygienist, Hanley started her career at the King Center in 1999, working in catering on a part time basis. I was looking for a new challenge. She started in The Crown Club, the King Center s VIP room on the mezzanine level. This is a membership club that plays a crucial role providing financial support for the King Center. I was so excited about the opportunity I would decorate the tables for the theme of the event, the scheduled concert or performance. When the group Alabama performed, I placed Confederate flags on the tables. For illusionist David Copperfield s show, I placed a hat with scarves going toward the ceiling. It was a lot of fun. Hanley added, I love my job. BREVARD BUSINESS NEWS / 10 Call Adrienne Roth at for Advertising Information

11 Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce recruits former businessowner Chevon Baccus as development director brings marketing, public relations, and fund raising expertise to position By Ken Datzman MERRITT ISLAND The Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce has hired a veteran marketing and public relations professional, who has longstanding roots in the community, to fill a key position for the membership based organization. Chevon Baccus, with 25 years experience in marketing, public relations and communications, business development, and fund raising, has come aboard as development director for the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber. A former small business owner, Baccus started her new job Sept. 1. We need Chevon s enthusiasm, her business experience, her ideas, her knowledge of the county. She just loves this area and that s what we want, said Lisa Stains, president and chief executive officer of the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber. Stains said Baccus will work in two areas, development and event planning. She will help us with our events, to make sure they go over the top, and to come up with a second signature event for the Chamber. The Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber s signature fund raiser is the annual Chowder Cook off, a weekend festival that typically draws thousands of people and which Baccus has taken part in as a community volunteer. I am thrilled to be here, said Baccus, a founding member of the Space Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association. This is home for me. I am part of the Baccus family who has lived in Brevard County for 50 years, though family situations have taken us out of the area for periods of time. Baccus resume includes having worked in community relations for Brevard County Public Schools and as the first executive director of the Brevard Schools Foundation, the organization s fund raising arm. She also was a reporter and editor for Florida Today. Recently, Baccus was a small business owner in Lake Wales and Winter Haven. She owned a two location women s fitness center, which was profitable from its first year. While in that market, Baccus said she got involved in the Lake Wales Area Chamber of Commerce and was the volunteer president of the board of directors for the roughly 500 member organization. I was very involved in Chamber activities. Baccus and the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber s business development staffers help member companies grow their enterprises, through promotional activities, workshops, educational seminars, and other avenues. Entrepreneurs have a passion for their business. They know their product or service, but many of them really don t know how to promote their business. And the Chamber is an excellent vehicle to do that, said Baccus, whose experience includes having run her own consulting firm. Baccus said she is committed to helping small businesses raise their visibility and grow through marketing and communications. As an independent business consultant, part of my practice was helping businesses take a look at their marketing. The first thing I recommended to them was joining the Chamber. Volunteer. Get on a committee. Get involved. Meet people. The Chamber is a business to business organization. It s a great way to network. She added, I know the challenges small business owners face. I am committed to helping them be successful. Baccus said the Chamber offers opportunities for businessowners to learn about marketing and develop skills that will benefit their company. We offer Chamber partners training and workshops, and we give them the tools to be successful. For example, we teach them how to use social media in their business. And the workshops are free of charge to Chamber partners. Stains says the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber promotes the philosophy of partners doing business with partners first. People do business with people they know. We re in a challenging economic time. It s kind of like the Old West. We ve got to circle our wagons around each other and do business within our circle. It s not going to make any of us millionaires at this time, but it s going to sustain us. And while we are sustaining during these times, when the climate improves, and it will, we ll be ready to jump aboard and do more business, added Stains. Chamber partnership has its benefits. As an example, Stains tells this story. A Walmart representative called her Chamber one day and said his company was thinking about putting an independent florist in a local Walmart store, as part of a pilot program. Do you have anybody who might be interested in talking to us? She said the Chamber recommended Magic Dove Florist and businessman Terry Flack. Magic Dove Florist is now operating inside the Walmart in Viera. It s believed to be the first independent florist business housed inside a Walmart. And it s the result of a referral from the Chamber, Stains said. The Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber has 1,553 members. Based on the number of dues paying members, it s the largest of the four Chambers in Brevard, serving a wide geographic area including the Central Brevard beaches. The average membership fee is $325 a year. Membership is holding steady. But we are finding it is taking a little longer for the checks to come through. So we are now offering an interest free payment plan for our partners. Over six months, they can spread out their partnership dues, said Stains, whose mother, Dee Huey, was a Cocoa Beach City Commissioner in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In addition to general membership, the Chamber has the Chairman s Club. It s the highest level of financial BBN photo Adrienne B. Roth Chevon Baccus, right, has joined the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber as development director. She was the first executive director of the Brevard Schools Foundation. At the Chamber, Baccus works with small businessowners. Melissa Stains is the Chamber s president and CEO. Stains said the Chamber is looking to expand its Chairman s Club, the highest level of financial support for the organization. support for the organization (a minimum contribution of $5,000). Club members receive special benefits, she said. We are fortunate to have Health First Inc., TD Bank, and Waste Management as members. We are hoping to entertain more businesses and organizations for the Chairman s Club before the end of the year, Stains said. Meanwhile, Baccus said she plans to contact some of the pillars of the business community, and maybe the next generation of owners of these businesses. We are at a critical juncture right now with a lot of small businesses struggling. As part of my job, I m going to be asking these successful businessowners to come back and invest in the Chamber as a whole.

They are able to be around others who can identify with what they have gone through and have similar emotional and physical scars. Camp attendees are paired with a like gender counselor who is often a firefighter, nurse, or physical therapist. Relationships forged at the camp often develop into lifelong friendships. A selection committee of six volunteers from Camp Amigo chose Ziarno to attend the International Burn Camp from a number of potential counselors this year. Andrea has shown a long term commitment to Camp Amigo and a tremendous passion for the work we do, said Camp Amigo President Rusty Roberts. She will be a wonderful ambassador for our camp, her department, and the state of Florida. Despite the praise from Roberts and other counselors, Ziarno remains humble and prefers the focus be put toward the camps and the services they provide. Being burned is not a one time event for these kids, their lives have been changed forever she said. The experience of working with these survivors has changed my life too.

Car Sales Continued from page 1 find an education job after she graduated two years ago. So she s using her teaching skills to impart product knowledge. Women in car sales get a special view of a man s world and are almost put on a pedestal, Pastucka said. It can have its benefits. At Vista Honda in Ventura, Calif., Stephanie Works is one of two women selling cars. She left a six year stint as a bartender to sell cars when a friend suggested she would be good at it. It was very difficult because I had no experience at all with cars, she said. Works studied the vehicles and made use of the people skills she developed bartending, and three years later she s still selling. She s learned customers can be rude, so you can t be sensitive or you won t last. For example, a year ago an older man pulled into the lot, and when she greeted him, he was gruff. He said, I don t work with women, she recalled. I said OK. That s how it happened. It kind of hurt my feelings, but I just kept on going with my day. He did buy a vehicle. I turned him to somebody and he sold him the car. But he just refused to work with me. Most of Works customers seem to like and trust her. They don t feel intimidated by me, she said. They feel I m honest right away and they open up to me right away. Being female can certainly work in your favor, said Vanessa Martinez, who s been selling cars for four months at the Bunnin Auto Outlet in Ventura, Calif. Martinez s father has worked for Bunnin for 14 years and got her started as a receptionist. She worked her way into sales and is now one of two women selling for the dealership. Customers are often surprised to see a woman, she said, but so far she hasn t had problems. It seems like if you re a girl, they re not so intimidated by you, she said. They ll see guys and some customers turn around and just leave the lot. Martinez has sold almost 50 vehicles since she began, and she s getting referrals. It s a good feeling, she said.

A poll of 7,502 small businesses (revenues of less than $5 million) in the U.S. also found that economic uncertainty and government regulations and taxes are top issues facing small enterprises. According to a report conducted by the U.S. Small Business Administration s Office of Advocacy last year, government regulations currently cost the U.S. economy $1.75 trillion a year, or more than 12 percent of the nation s gross domestic product. In the last five years, the SBA report says, there has been a 60 percent increase in pending federal regulations that are defined as major or economically significant costing the economy $100 million or more. Enacted into law as part of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, the Small Business Lending Fund provides capital to qualified community banks with assets of less than $10 billion. Typically, these banks devote the highest percentage of their lending to small businesses in their communities. They account for more than 60 percent of all small business loans nationwide, between $100,000 and $1 million, even though they make up only 20 percent of all bank assets. The Treasury program hopes to break down barriers to credit and provide support for entrepreneurs. Through the Small Business Lending Fund, Main Street banks and small businesses can work together to help create jobs and promote economic growth in their respective communities, Taylor said. This is a great opportunity for Community Bank of the South. It s a way for us to try to help local businesses during these tough economic times. It s designed to help give banks the ability to loan money in the community, and that s very important, he said. So far, more than 900 community banks have applied to participate in the program and provide capital to qualified borrowers. But the actual number of currently active banks is small in scope. Just over 130 banks are part of the Small Business Lending Fund initiative. More than 40 percent of the applicants failed to meet program requirements, according to Bloomberg News. There are many requirements including the size of the bank. The U.S. Department of Treasury kicked off the program in July, with the first six community banks receiving a total of $123 million to lend to small businesses. Today, select banks around the country have received roughly $2 billion in Small Business Lending Fund money. We welcome the opportunity to be a participant in this program and even more important to have customers come to us so we can make business loans, said Community Bank of the South Vice President Nancy Brower. Entrepreneurs and small businesses create jobs. And that s what we need to do to get the economy moving again. Brower herself is a former small business owner in the county. She owned and operated residential lender Evergreen Mortgage Co. for 13 years before joining Community Bank of the South four years ago. Small businesses play a critical role in the U.S. economy and are key to growth and job creation. They employ roughly one half of all Americans and account for about 60 percent of gross job creation, according the U.S. Small Business Administration. But small business owners faced disproportionate challenges in the aftermath of the recession and the credit crisis, including difficulty accessing capital. Any credit is significant to small businesses in this environment, said John Willison, Community Bank of the South underwriter. The last several years have been difficult for small businesses seeking capital to expand their operations. The Small Business Lending Fund money can be used for such things as business expansion, refinancing, equipment purchases and capital expenditures, as well as owner occupied real estate investments. For this program, we are generally looking for owner occupied real estate loan applicants, said Willison, who has been a commercial banker for 25 years, working in risk management and underwriting for 18 of those years. He estimates that the typical Community Bank of the South Small Business Lending Fund loan will range form $300,000 to $500,000. The bank s underwriting loan committee analyzes a Small Business Lending Fund applicant a number of ways, said Willison. Cash flow and collateral are the two primary underwriting factors we consider. From a broader prospective, does the borrower have the capacity and willingness to repay the loan? Weak demand from credit worthy borrowers, regulatory pressure to build capital to asset ratios, and loan losses are pressures banks face when considering new lending. However, while the overall loan volume has remained mostly level over the past year, it does not indicate that banks have stopped lending altogether, according to a report by the American Bankers Association. Banks initiated roughly $1.6 trillion in new lending over the past 12 months, says the ABA. We need to lend to grow the bank, said Taylor. Small business lending in the community has been the cornerstone of Community Bank of the South all these years. With this Treasury program, perhaps we can serve some new, and existing, small business customers. The Small Business Lending Fund is one part of the Obama administration s agenda to help small businesses access the capital they need to invest and hire. The State Small Business Credit Initiative, which is also a key part of the Small Business Jobs Act, allocates $1.5 billion to new and existing state programs that will leverage private financing to spur $15 billion in new lending to small businesses and small manufacturers.
