Some OBDC staff members just returned from the annual Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) conference in Denver, Colorado. OFN is a national membership organization that supports community development financial institutions like OBDC. This was an exciting year for the conference because it marked OFN’s 30th anniversary. Fellow CDFIs, banking partners, and policy makers came together to celebrate success and address challenges. As Jen Leybovich, OBDC’s Vice President of Programs and Strategy said, “the OFN conference was a terrific forum to learn about the latest trends, challenges, and innovations within the CDFI sector. Hearing updates from bank, government, and nonprofit partners was also very informative. It was great to meet fellow CDFI industry colleagues and feel the national impact from all the work CDFIs do to finance community development.” We were happy to participate and want to send a huge thank you to our friends at OFN!
