Bank of Montgomery’s Stephen Van Sickle, Vice President and USDA Lender, recently traveled to Washington D.C. on behalf of the National Rural Lenders Association. Stephen is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the NRLA. The NRLA’s Government Relations Committee travels to Capitol hill three times a year to meet with members of Congress and Senate about USDA Farm Service Agency, Rural Development and Community Facilities guaranteed lending programs. The NRLA Board of Directors presented awards to elected officials because of their efforts and support for the USDA guaranteed lending programs.
