The CDFI Round Table Peer Forum sponsored by NAAC on April 4th, 2017 was wildly successful with nearly 100 people in attendance. Panelists included former Banc of California CEO, Steve Sugarman, Sal Mendoza of City National Bank, Mike Occasion from SBFOC, Emerson Hall from the FDIC, Nancee Trombley from IBank. The session started and concluded with poignant comments from Annie Donovan, Director of the CDFI Fund. Those in attendance applauded the realization that engagement with CDFI was a win-win strategy for both CDFIs and Financial Institution. The Forum will reconvene at the NAAC annual conference. NAAC CEO, Faith Bautista, was applauded for her visionary strategy and leadership.
