CDFI Announces 2014 Trainings For Minority Depository Institutions
WASHINGTON (11/7/13)--The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund Wednesday released the 2014 training schedule for its Preserving and Expanding CDFI Minority Depository Institutions program. The program provides advanced training and technical assistance for CDFI MDIs, and MDIs working toward becoming certified as a CDFI.
 
From January through September 2014, the CDFI Fund's series will offer two, free training sessions, five webinars, and individual technical assistance to CDFI MDIs across the country.
 
The in-person training sessions will focus on topics such as:
  • Addressing asset quality;
  • Optimizing portfolios;
  • Improving revenue strategies;
  • Accessing capital market solutions;
  • Telling the story of an organization's impact;
  • Enhancing operational performance; and,
  • Developing a strategic plan. 
The sessions are intended to have two-fold benefit serving both as an organizational development experience, as well as providing an opportunity for CDFI MDIs to convene with their peer group to discuss strategies to strengthen and expand their institutions, and to explore cutting-edge tools, business models, and market innovations. 
 
The sessions are slated for Atlanta, Ga. on Jan. 22-23 and New York City on Feb. 4-5. Use the resource link for registration information.
 
Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP and its partners will deliver the trainings. Training attendees will be eligible to receive free, direct, technical assistance provided by professionals within Deloitte FAS and its partners. The technical assistance is intended to provide support for the implementation of the concepts explored at the training.
 
Also, the five, free 2014 webinars will be developed based on commentary from the participants of the live trainings. More information on the webinar topics and dates will be provided when available on the CDFI Fund's website.
