Networking opportunities abounded for local bankers who were in attendance at our Inaugural Bankers Breakfast.

Inaugural Bankers Breakfast a Success!

AT UHI, we feel it is important to acknowledge folks for their contributions and passion for investing in our work. Recently, we had the chance to thank a group of Memphis businesses and business people who make a real impact on what we do: community-oriented bankers. You can see how great it went here. Our guests enjoyed a nice breakfast spread while Board Members Keith Turbett, Teresa Cheeks-Wilson, and Mike Fearnley--and founder and Executive Director Tim Bolding--shared a little about the impact United Housing has on economic development in Memphis.

We gave out ten awards; recipients included Landmark Community Bank, Paragon, Pinnacle, Community Mortgage, Iberia, Mortgage Investors Group, and Prime Lending. We also recognized an individual banker from Landmark--David May--for his extensive community development work. Our team saw it as an opportunity to give much-deserved recognition to this community for their hard work in Memphis. It was also a good time to let them know they can join UHI committees (any committee, not just Finance) and that they are likely to get to see their dollars at work on-the-ground in revitalized Memphis neighborhoods. And since UHI is founded on the principle that nonprofits should generate social enterprise-based fees-for-service, we also proudly plugged our current programs so that the next group of bankers can invest in them the next year.

All in all the Breakfast was a huge success, with people expressing interest in coming to do a site visit to learn more and to join committees. Here's to the start of something beautiful in 2016!
