Nominations open today for the 2021 OFN Board Elections. This year, OFN members will cast votes to fill five seats up for re-election on OFN’s Board of Directors. Do you know a talented, visionary, and energetic CDFI champion — are you one? Don’t wait to submit your nomination!
Board members are strategic leaders and ambassadors for OFN and the CDFI industry. They are dedicated to OFN’s core purpose and mission, committed to excellence and justice, and determined to work closely with key industry stakeholders to grow and expand our field.
Please look across OFN’s membership and among your organization’s staff and leadership for strong candidates for the OFN Board.
To ensure that the Board represents the diversity of OFN’s membership, we especially encourage representatives of CDFIs led by people of color, Native CDFIs, and small and emerging CDFIs to consider running.
