Finding Community Development Opportunities will explore some of the diverse Community Reinvestment Act qualifying activities available to banks, including investment and service options. Presenters, including representatives from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Small Business Administration, and others, will highlight strategies and resources applicable to urban, suburban, and rural areas, and provide guidance on where banks can go for additional information.
This webinar will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2013, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EDT). To participate, institutions must register by June 21.
Each institution is responsible for assessing whether the ideas and information presented during the webinar are appropriate for the institution to pursue, given factors such as the institution's business focus, existing economic inclusion/community development strategies, financial condition, and market.
This is the third in a series of six free webinars, offering bankers ideas and possible strategies to enhance efforts to promote community development and economic inclusion. Webinars are held every other month. Registration is required.
