Banks have long played an important role in helping communities thrive. Providing a child’s first savings account, financing the dream of owning a home or working with local organizations to deliver quality financial information or other wealth-building opportunities are all examples of how banks invest in their communities. The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, FDIC and the OCC invite you to join us for a community forum on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at the Capitol Commerce Building in Montgomery, Alabama.
The morning goal of the event will be to generate better understanding of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and lay groundwork for effective bank and non-profit partnerships. Breakout sessions will include two separate tracks: one that provides CRA training for area non-profits and another seminar designed for CRA and Compliance Officers on understanding the local environment for CRA investment and examination performance context.
Examiners from each regulatory agency will be on hand to help answer specific questions regarding CRA activities and the examination process, and Community Affairs staff will be on hand to field questions regarding bank CRA opportunities in the region.
The afternoon will focus on effective collaboration and community development strategies between banks, local government and non-profits and finish by fostering partnership opportunities between these groups through a working session.
The forum will also include opportunities for networking and joint learning on specialized topics for bankers and nonprofit organizations.
We hope you’ll join us by registering here and filling out the short form with your contact information. If you have any questions please email John Olsen at email@example.com.
