In 2018, candidates for OFN’s Board will run for five seats, and nominations are now open.

Serving on OFN’s Board is a unique opportunity for opportunity finance practitioners from CDFIs of all sizes to help shape our industry. As strategic leaders and ambassadors for OFN members and allies, 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, innovative new directions.

"It’s an exciting time to join the OFN board as we prepare to move our headquarters to Washington, D.C. and take on new challenges. We are looking forward to new energy and ideas—I hope you will nominate someone you think demonstrates exceptional leadership, or even yourself!” said Jim King, President and CEO of Fahe, and Chair of the OFN Board of Directors.

Look across OFN’s membership and among your organization’s staff and leadership for strong candidates for our 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.

OFN Member CDFIs will vote on October 10 at the OFN Annual Conference in Chicago, or by proxy.
