Today, OFN opens nominations for our 2020 Board Elections. In the fall, our members will cast votes to fill three open seats on OFN’s Board of Directors.   

This is an exciting and important time to consider Board service.

The past few months have been remarkable for the CDFI industry. More than ever before, communities across America are turning to CDFIs for help, and the public and private sectors are amplifying the message that CDFIs are solutions during crisis.

OFN’s Board helps shape the industry and further position CDFIs as financial first responders, as well as leaders in the work for social, economic, and political justice. We need diverse voices on the Board to reflect our industry and the communities CDFIs serve.

Nominate a colleague in the field whose vision, leadership, and expertise will bring a new perspective to strengthening and growing OFN and the entire CDFI field. Maybe you are that person?

All nominations must be received by 11:59 PM (nominator’s time) on August 21, 2020.

The elections will take place on November 11 during OFN’s virtual Annual Membership meeting. The Membership Meeting will be part of OFN’s 2020 Annual Conference, which is virtual this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
