2016 NMTC Coalition Annual Conference
The 2016 NMTC Coalition’s Policy Conference will be held on Wednesday, June 1st, from 8:30 am until 4 pm in Washington, DC. This year’s event will take place at the Hotel Palomar located at 2121 P Street Northwest. CDFI Fund Director Annie Donovan is confirmed as a keynote speaker. In addition, the Coalition will release its new 2016 NMTC Progress Report.
As in past years, the NMTC Policy Conference will feature a great line-up of panels and informative speakers. Attendees will engage with senior Treasury and CDFI Fund staff, in addition to hearing from panels featuring NMTC industry leaders and experts on NMTC and the law. This year, the conference will also include a session on how CDEs and investors can engage the media to showcase their NMTC work, promoting their success to Congress and the community, which has even resulted in new business opportunities for some CDEs. The Coalition’s public relations firm will offer best practices and Board Members who have worked with them will present on their experiences. The agenda will close out with an investor roundtable. Leading NMTC investors will discuss current and emerging trends and recent changes to the NMTC.
Registration is $300 for NMTC Coalition Members, and $350 for non-members. Please note that all registration fees are non-refundable after May 3, 2016.
