Federation to hold Mid-South Mid-Atlantic conferences (02/21/2011)
NEW YORK (2/22/11)--Registration is open for two regional conferences organized by the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions. The Mid-South Regional Conference, held in collaboration with the Louisiana Credit Union League, will take place March 21, in New Orleans. The conference is offered for the benefit of credit unions that are low-income designated or community development financial institution (CDFI) certified, have expanded into underserved areas, or want to serve low- and moderate-income (LMI) members within their fields of membership more effectively. Among the topics:
* Benefits of CDFI certification and low-income designation; * Resources available to strengthen a credit union’s capacity to serve underserved communities; * Innovative programs and products to meet the needs of LMI members and consumers; * Community partnerships to leverage and expand credit union service to the underserved; * Tools to help management develop effective outreach strategies for LMI markets; and * Reporting requirements and the regulatory environment;
The second conference, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference, organized in partnership with the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, will be April 27, in Charlottesville, Va. Professor Gregory Fairchild, executive director of the Tayloe Murphy Center and associate professor of business administration at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, will unveil research that analyzes the impact of CDFIs , including CDFI credit unions. Participants also will learn about resources available from the federal government and regional programs, explore how to design successful strategies to meet the needs of LMI communities, gain insights from field experts and listen to community-based organizations serving these markets.
