Whether it’s sharing best practices, catching up with colleagues at like-minded organizations, or meeting with policy makers, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s 2011 Annual Conference promises to brings together hundreds of community leaders, development experts, bankers, legislators, regulators, academics and others. Participants explore and debate the state of the industry and measures needed to ensure fair access to capital and to bring more people into the financial mainstream.
Wednesday, April 13 to Saturday, April 16
Each year, over 20 advocates, community stakeholders, and decision makers from the Chicago region participate – presenting on the economic justice issues that affect the Chicago region the most. Through panel discussions, networking opportunities, and the annual NCRC member day on Capitol Hill, advocates meet with colleagues from around the country to develop actionable strategies to improve housing opportunity, promote fair lending, and get vacant properties back into productive use.
This year’s early bird registration of just $99 has been extended to Friday February 18 for current NCRC members.
Woodstock Institute is also pleased to make a limited number of scholarships available to current or prospective NCRC members (a $49 deposit is required, which is fully refundable after the conference). Please contact Tom Feltner at 312-368-0310 x2028 for details.
