Let’s Bond Together

December 16, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Bonding has been a barrier that has prevented many small, women, and minority-owned businesses from competing for larger city, state, and federal governmental contracts.

Join our bond agent as she covers the “Four C’s” of the bonding process: Credit, Capital, Character, and Capacity to perform. She will answer your questions regarding bonding, the underwriting process, financial statements, and bank lines of credit. She can help you qualify for bonding. This information will empower you and can help you to move your company to another level by establishing a bond line.
