At the Last Subcommittee Meeting…
You can find the previous meeting minutes here.
The Finance, Banking, & Business subcommittee had its last meeting on Wednesday, June 16th.
Subcommittee members were presented with the outcomes of the Action Summit including attendee statistics, actions that are on target, what attendees felt was missing, and recommendations/strategies to continue the conversation.
Based on the feedback from the Action Summit, the subcommittee is heading in the right direction and is ready to begin drafting recommendations.
Subcommittee members also reviewed the top three issues that participants from the Action Summit believe the Task Force/subcommittee should work on. Based on this feedback, the subcommittee members added two sub-bullet points to their initial two priorities which include financial literacy educationand addressing racial and ethnic barriers and inequities.
Subcommittee members also discussed the preliminary results of the Small Business Survey and discussed strategies for their survey to reach more people. If you are a former, current, or aspiring business owner in West Palm Beach, we encourage you to fill out this survey so we can understand the challenges facing small businesses, especially minority-owned businesses.
