Recently OFN announced our 2021 event updates, including this year’s 37th annual OFN Conference. From October 19-21, CDFI staff and partners, impact-oriented students, investors, funders, and policymakers, and other economic justice advocates from across the country will join together virtually for thought-provoking plenaries, informative breakout sessions, and networking.

After a successful 2020 OFN Virtual Conference, we’re pleased to offer a virtual experience again this year that prioritizes safety while also allowing greater participation and accessibility to stakeholders in all the communities CDFIs serve nationwide. This year’s theme — “Finance Justice. Finance Change.” — expands on last year’s “Finance Justice” theme to highlight how CDFIs are driving change by combatting racial inequality and persistent poverty and ensuring a more just economic recovery. 

As we develop the agenda and speaker lineup for the OFN Conference and other 2021 events, OFN is seeking session content proposals from a diverse and inclusive group of individuals and organizations. OFN's Call for Sessions page offers guidance on developing a strong proposal, session proposal requirements, sample session descriptions, and more.

Visit OFN's Call for Sessions page to submit a proposal! The deadline for submissions is June 18. 

Also, in case you missed it, registration for the 2021 OFN Conference is now open
