OFN Board members are passionate about OFN’s core mission, committed to our core values of justice and excellence, and determined to lead the opportunity finance industry in exciting, innovate new directions. Serving on the Board is a unique opportunity to help set the path for the opportunity finance industry’s future.
Ahead of the 2022 OFN Conference in October, we ask that OFN members nominate their ideal candidates for the OFN Board of Directors. By requiring that two-thirds of the Board be elected by OFN membership, OFN ensures that diverse perspectives and voices guide the industry. This is a unique opportunity for practitioners from CDFIs of all sizes to help, and we hope you take the time to put forth a nomination.
Nominees for the OFN Board must be on the Board or staff of an OFN member CDFI and receive nominations from at least two OFN members to qualify as a candidate. Read our Candidate Profile for more information about what criteria the OFN Board seeks in Board Members.
Visit OFN’s Board Election page to learn more about the election process. The last day to nominate a candidate is July 22, 2022, 11:59 PM (nominator’s time). Please email Alba Castillo or Regina Robinson with questions.
