NYS CDFI Coalition conference slated for March 30-31 in Albany


The New York State Community Development Financial Institutions Coalition will host its annual conference March 30–31 at the Albany Marriott. The conference focus on the successes and challenges of delivering financial resources to underserved communities.

“The New York State Coalition of CDFIs is a unique and forward approach in the CDFI world,” said John Felton, a board member of the New York State CDFI Coalition and CEO of Southern Chautauqua FCU. “By uniting all types of CDFIs, we are able to offer a unified voice to our state leadership.”

The conference, “New York CDFIs: Collaborating for Impact,” will feature educational sessions that explore what financial institutions across New York are doing to promote cybersecurity, how CDFIs and community partners are joining forces to uncover opportunities for housing preservation, and legacy business planning for small businesses.

Attendees will also hear a keynote address, “Focus on Sustainable Economic & Equitable Growth,” presented by Marla Bow, a senior vice president in the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth. Additionally, the conference will include public policy updates, a reception and numerous networking opportunities.
