Notice of change of meeting.


The Small Business Administration (SBA) published a notice in the Federal Register on February 28, 2019, announcing that the Office of Financial Assistance would be holding two public forums with members of the general public on SBA-guaranteed business loans to cooperatives. The purpose of the public forums is to provide an opportunity for members of the public to present their views to SBA on practical alternatives to satisfying SBA's personal guarantee requirement for small businesses with cooperative ownership. Today's notice announces the cancellation of the public forum that was going to be held in Kansas City, Missouri, on March 19, 2019. A teleconference, to allow more attendees to participate, will be conducted in its place.


The public forum will take place via teleconference on March 29, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Saving Time. Please note the registration instructions under the Supplementary Information section of this notice.
