Regional Meetings

OFN’s mission is to lead CDFIs and their partners to ensure that disinvested communities have access to affordable, responsible financial products and services. As a national network, we are committed to not only supporting CDFIs with diverse lending programs and asset sizes, but also gathering these CDFIs together with other industry stakeholders in regions where they have a presence.

Regional Meetings are one-day meetings offering OFN members, other CDFIs, banks, foundations, and other industry stakeholders the chance to engage in peer exchange and training to improve their effectiveness in increasing low-income and low-wealth communities’ access to responsible financial products and services.

Jackson, MS — March 2020 (Postponed)

Special Notice

Out of an abundance of caution, OFN has decided to postpone the Southeast Regional Meeting in Jackson, MS, on March 17.

OFN is committed to protecting the health and safety of our event attendees and OFN staff. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state the immediate risk from COVID-19 in the United States is thought to be low. However, while the situation continues to unfold, we have determined that we will reduce travel and gatherings.

We are exploring options to reschedule the Southeast Regional Meeting later this year, and we sincerely hope that you will consider attending the rescheduled event.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
