Over one pre-Conference day and three exciting Conference days, more than 1,600 CDFI practitioners, investors, partners, and funders came together in the nation’s capital to talk about the remarkable work CDFIs do in rural, urban, and Native communities nationwide.
Traveling from across the U.S., Conference goers attended 119 sessions, toured numerous CDFI-supported projects around D.C., networked, met with policymakers, made new friends, connected with old friends, and visited our dynamic Expo.
We heard from leaders of the field, among them President William Jefferson Clinton, one of the industry’s biggest champions, who presented a keynote marking the 25thanniversary of the CDFI Fund. The days were full and the learning inspiring. OFN is grateful to everyone who joined us in D.C. to make 2019’s Conference one to remember forever.
Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors and Co-hosts!
