OFN Conference 2017 was the largest ever gathering of CDFI practitioners, funders, investors, students, and more. More than 1,400 individuals gathered in Washington, D.C.
Our Closing Plenary, CDFIs: How Far We’ve Come, How Far Can We Go? was moderated by Donna Gambrell, President and CEO, Appalachian Community Capital.
Our Opening Plenary panel, Closing the Gap in Communities Left Behind, provided a rousing, in-depth conversation that explored what it will take for CDFIs to generate macro-level impact in our nation’s most economically challenged areas.
One benefit of hosting a conference in Washington, D.C. is the opportunity for OFN and CDFIs to network and engage with members of Congress.
