Webinar: What credit unions need to know about CDFI certification

As a benefit of membership in the New York Credit Union Association, credit unions considering CDFI certification can learn more about what it means to be a CDFI as well as what is involved the certification process (both the streamlined and standard application process), in a complimentary webinar at 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20.

The timing of this session is key, as the NCUA recently announced that federally insured, low-income credit unions seeking CDFI certification can apply for the NCUA’s streamlined qualification process between Sept. 12 and Oct. 15, as previously reported.

Speakers include:

  • Chriselle Martinez, PhD, CDFI program director at Inclusiv, who brings an extensive background in community development with a central focus on credit union community and partnership development; and
  • Terry Ratigan, senior consultant at Inclusiv, who provides expertise on CDFI certification, recertification, grant writing, and strategic planning for CDCUs around the country.

Interested participants can register for this event on the Association’s website. Additional information about the NCUA’s streamlined qualification can be accessed on the NCUA website.
