What's New

Dear Fellow Bankers and Community Supporters,

It is with mixed emotions that I am informing you that Cecilia La Villa-Travieso is retiring from NLP the end of this month. I am pleased for Cecilia and from all of us at NLP, we offer best wishes.

To provide the staff of NLP time to share the holidays with their families and to recharge their batteries, NLP will be closing its offices between Christmas and New Years Day. We will close on Tuesday, December the 24th at noon and reopen on Thursday, January 2, 2014. While this is only four business days, it will offer staff a nice break and time to really relax and enjoy their families.

From NLP we wish you a wonderful holiday season and prosperous New Year. We appreciate your support and commitment to NLP and look forward to a very productive and successful 2014. You are all wonderful partners to us in our efforts to meet the financing needs of Florida's underserved populations and communities.
