UBM Kickoff Event Highlight

Our Underserved Business Month Kickoff was a major event for us. It marked the
beginning of a month-long celebration and support campaign for minority-owned
businesses, women, veterans, and low-income individuals. We brought together a
diverse group of people, including local government officials, community groups, and
banks, who all care about making the economy more equitable.
