This roundtable, led by Skip Hageboeck and John DeRito of City National Bank, will address the banking industry in light of the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), the economy and, most importantly, what business owners, CEOs and presidents can do to position their firm to access capital in today's uncertain times. Cost is $10 for current Alliance members and $20 for future Alliance members. Seating is limited, reserve your seat today!
