Each year, OFN holds as many as four OFN Regional Meetings around the country. These one-day meetings are for OFN Members, non-Member CDFIs, funders, investors, and others to share experiences, explore opportunities for collaboration, and discuss issues of interest to them. Regional meetings typically attract 30 to 50 people serving a multi-state region.
All meetings include facilitated networking and a report from OFN President and CEO, Mark Pinsky. The rest of the agenda is set by the OFN Members in the region. Past agendas have included presentations and discussions on the regional economy, roles for CDFIs in the green economy, CDFI foreclosure prevention programs, establishing a regional CDFI alliance, portfolio management, and bank-CDFI relationships.
