Builders Circle: Construction Loans at Arvest

Meetings In-Person and Open to All
Non-Members: $20 Door Charge ~ Members Always Free


We will continue in-person meetings (with more strenuous social distancing)
AND stream all future meetings for those who are uncomfortable
with attending large group events. 

If you have been vaccinated, we welcome you to attend in person
as your comfort level dictates. If you haven't been vaccinated yet,
 we offer the option of viewing the meetings online or suggest
you consider wearing a mask if attending in person.

We hope this compromise is one that will keep us all safe
without losing the benefits of in-person networking
we've grown to appreciate.
