Register now for the CDFI Fund’s Expanding CDFI Coverage in Underserved Areas Capacity Building Initiative workshop in Kansas City, MO.
The first workshop in June in Baltimore was a resounding success. This will be a great opportunity to learn about and receive training and assistance in forming and operating a Community Development Venture Capital (CDVC) fund. We are cooperating with our sister CDFI trade associations in providing a series of two-day training sessions this summer. These sessions are provided FREE of charge under a capacity building contract from the federal CDFI Fund. Participants in the sessions will be given first preference in receiving free technical assistance–both one-on-one and in groups–from CDVCA and other technical assistance partners.
Expansion by Existing CDFIs, August 19-20, 2015, Kansas City, MO: This workshop is targeted at existing CDFI banks, credit unions, loan funds, and venture capital funds seeking to explore successful strategies for geographic and product expansion in underserved areas and areas of persistent poverty.
Details of the sessions and how to register are in the information found HERE. Remember, FREE technical assistance and group programs will be available in the months after the workshops on a first-come, first-served basis in the months after the sessions, and preference will be given to those who attend the workshops. Please do not hesitate to contact Kerwin Tesdell at email@example.com if you have any questions.
