OFN Conference and Lend360?

Wed, 2018-10-03 03:06
From : Communities>>Open Forum
Not sure if this was coordinated or purely coincidental (and a little ironic) - but Lend360 is happening on the same days as OFN in Chicago - which apparently is the conference for online lenders and fintechs?  I'm just mostly curious and fascinated its all happening at once - I see CFSI is speaking but the rest look like they are purely private, high tech/high growth companies.  Old School (including myself) vs. New School..anyone bouncing between the two? http://www.lend360.org Home - For the Industry.

OK so I think I am a little slow on the uptake. However, I received a direct message from someone the other day saying they saw that I was attending the conference and could we talk about some things. My question is where is the link to see about attendees and a deeper dive into agendas and any new changes etc...? Thanks. ------------------------------ Ted Piccolo Execituve Director Northwest Native Development Fund Nespelem WA 509-634-2624 ------------------------------

How thoughtful of you @Mary Fran Riley !  Thanks for sharing. Do you have any other tips / suggestions for those of us from "tiny towns" (under 10,000 population) who will be attending?  I am so excited to see Chicago for the first time!  Is taxi the best / safest mode of transportation to the Marriott at 11 pm on Sunday night? It also looks like I may have a few spots of free time, but it will be limited.  If I could only see one thing,  what would you suggest?  Are there any "must see" hot spots [More]
