TBT: Flashback: An early Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) Strategic Economic Summit, l-r me, Dr. Darrell Hewitt DWH Consulting, Julius Robinson Managing Director Social Responsibility North America Union Bank when he was Union Bank Regional Banking Manager Northern/ Central California and Marjorie Grace CEO Grace Financial Services. We did this UFSC event at the old Washington Mutual WAMU Commercial Banking headquarter offices- Henry Williams -BJW Insurance-was the Northern Central California WAMU Manager and Carine Koutcho WAMU Administrator hosted us. New ideas, new contacts, new business and new jobs resulted that day.
I am gratified that this program is now in its 13th year from my creating it with attendances exceeding 180 people per session.
