 Washington, D.C., August 25, 2020 – The Native CDFI Network (NCN) is hosting their Annual Policy & Capacity Building Summit virtually for the first time this fall.

The conference will run from 1 P.M. EST to 2:30 P.M. EST for all three days, and will include a number of issue specific working groups and breakout sessions to the address unique and diverse needs of Native CDFI’s across the country.

“While NCN would love to have our conference in person and connect face to face, we’re excited for this new opportunity to bring our work and support to people across the country,” said Jackson Brossy, Executive Director of NCN. “This will be our first virtual conference, and it will provide a great opportunity for our CDFI’s to connect with one another and to find ways that we can further support each other and our communities.”
