Bank and Thrift Regulatory Agencies and CDFI Fund to Sponsor National Interagency Community Reinvestment Conference
The federal bank and thrift regulatory agencies and the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund will be hosting the 2010 National Interagency Community Reinvestment Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, from March 14 to 18, 2010. This biennial conference is designed to offer participants from around the country the opportunity to learn about the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and its regulations, as well as the chance to network with colleagues, and to discuss best practices and emerging challenges in community development.
The conference will feature four tracks on CRA Compliance, Investments, Community Development, and the National Community Development Lending School. The agenda will cover how CRA loans, investments, and services can have a positive and lasting impact in low- and moderate-income communities. The conference will also include volunteer opportunities and tours exploring revitalization projects in New Orleans. Attendees may also register for a one-day Advanced Investments conference on Thursday, March 18.
