The 2021 OFN Conference will take place virtually this October 19-21. With 2,500 attendees participating in the 2020 OFN Virtual Conference — the most in the event’s 37-year history — we hope to welcome even more CDFI staff and partners, investors, funders, policymakers, students, and other advocates from across the country this fall!
We’ve created the following materials to help you promote your participation in the 2021 OFN Conference, encourage others to attend, and share your support for the largest event for learning, networking, and collaborating in the CDFI industry.
In quiet neighborhoods across America, on tribal lands, deep in the heart of our farmland, and in busy cities, CDFIs are helping to build an equitable economic future. CDFIs have new and steadfast partners who share our bold ideas about how to finance justice. With support from the public and private sectors we are working with communities to finance change.
On October 19–21, join CDFI staff and partners, investors, funders, policymakers, students, and other advocates from across the country for the 2021 OFN Virtual Conference: Finance Justice. Finance Change. Take advantage of low virtual event rates by registering yourself — and your entire team — to attend this inspiring three-day convening.
