  1. Hello! Thanks for blogging about our conference. Given your interest in John Hoffmire’s emploey asset building session, I want to invite you to attend the Business Roundtable, that will take place on Day 1 of the conference, September 11th, from 2 – 5 pm. We’ll have three presenters from employer-based asset building initiatives that are providing innovative ways to promote financial stability for their employees, and some great framing remarks from an expert in this area from the New America Foundation. We will provide you with a complimentary registration. If you would like to attend, or want more information, please send me an email and I will send you the agenda, registration form and background flyer.

  2. Hello,
    As a long time CFED partner and fan, I personally (and we at Oweesta) cannot say enough about the conference and agree whole-heartedly that it is tough to choose from all those sessions. We are pleased to be helping with the Native pre-conference again and it looks to be another great effort for asset building in Native communities. Having attended a number of these conferences (and too many others to count) and helped organize part of them for Native participants in the past, it is hard to create the tracks and sessions that fit all the needs. Since Blair will not be the only first-timer at the conference a review of all the sessions is important and if you are not coming alone, the best advice I have is to ‘divide and conquer’ with other staff, which is what we recommend to all our clients in the Native asset building and CDFI world that come to our conferences and trainings (and others). This is especially helpful for new staff, new board members, etc. as the right fit might be found individually.

    I do want to point out that if you have not had a lot of exposure to the CDFI world, in particular the Native CDFIs, the policy panel and the impact discussion will be powerful for your learning and learning to take back and ‘educate’ the local community. ONE CORRECTION – the link for Oweesta is incorrect, as it is pointing to our sister organization, who does not do what we do. Could that be fixed please to point folks to… we would be glad to help any Native clients interested in Native CDFI, financial education, EITC, IDA, entrepreneurship, etc. development.

    Enjoy the conference Blair and anyone attending!
