The President will then meet with CEOs of several small and community banks in the Roosevelt Room to discuss the ways we can work together to continue on a path to economic recovery. The President will reiterate to attendees that we all have a stake in getting the economy back on track from the government to the small and large financial institutions to the private sector. As a part of that conversation, he plans to discuss the need to increase lending to small businesses, the housing foreclosure crisis and the importance of passing financial reform to local communities.
