Our History
Share |


In July 2003, thirteen small business lenders gathered to discuss the absence of suitable training, networking, and recognition among the community of small business guaranteed lenders in our District, and the GEORGIA LENDERS QUALITY CIRCLE (GLQC) was created to meet these needs.

GLQC is a non-profit association for banks, non-bank lenders, certified development companies, small business development centers, micro-lenders and other associations, professionals, and service providers that are active in the origination, support, management, and liquidation of government guaranteed small business loans.

The association seeks to provide a forum for its members to exchange ideas, insight, and information with the greater community of small business lenders, small business advisory services, professionals serving small businesses, SBA officials, and the other parties involved with this market. Such activities will strengthen our industry by promoting better education, and creating a stronger environment in which to operate and prosper.

An initial networking event sponsored on October 16, 2003 demonstrated that the idea of an association was popular among many area participants, so we continued to define the mission of this group.

We invite you to get involved in this association. We have established membership as a means to support our programs, seminars, and networking events. In addition to the Lenders Conference, we plan to participate in events during Small Business Week in the Spring. Your membership will help your business and industry.
