Every two years, the Federal Banking Regulatory Agencies (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), host this important interagency conference for FDIC-insured minority depository institutions in order to help preserve and promote their mission. The 2013 event was held June 10-12 at the FDIC’s L. William Seidman Center in Arlington, Virginia. FDIC Chairman Martin J. Gruenberg, Federal Reserve Board Governor Sarah Bloom Raskin, and Comptroller of the Currency, Thomas J. Curry, welcomed other senior Federal officials and Minority and Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) bank executives from around the country, to explore “Strategies for Success through Collaboration.”
The conference encouraged interactive discussion among those who believe minority depository institutions and CDFI banks are uniquely positioned to create positive change in their communities. The conference also encouraged a diverse array of participants to express their views. A complete record of the conference, including detailed information on programs available to assist MDI and CDFI banks, is provided below.
