[WILL BE RESCHEDULED] Mesa Financial Network- April Meeting

[WILL BE RESCHEDULED] Mesa Financial Network- April Meeting

Friday, April 22, 2022 (8:00 AM - 9:00 AM) (MST)


About the Mesa Financial Network

The Mesa Financial Network is composed of leading professionals from local banks, credit unions, fintech
companies, and financial planning firms. The primary focus of this group is to identify major issues within
the finance industry and effect meaningful change. The ideas and solutions of the MFN are able to come
to fruition, in part, through the presence of Senator Sinema who is a member of the Banking, Housing, &
Urban Affairs Committee, along with her staff.

There are many shared issues within the financial community, regardless of the size. With this, meeting as
one functioning body is beneficial as there are a variety of members with diverse perspectives present to
help collectively find a solution. In the past, topics such as banking with MRB’s and combating predatory
lending have been discussed along with standard regulatory issues. Th Mesa Financial Network not only
facilitates discussion but introduces members to their peers and provides opportunities to hear from
speakers such as Arizona state senators and C-level executives from major financial institutions.
Ultimately, this committee grants access to the industry’s decision makers and acts as a centralized network
for all professionals in finance.
