CRA: Partnering for Success

Happy people meeting each other

Thu., Aug. 15, 2013
1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Norfolk State University Scott Dozier Ball Room, Scott Dozier Ball Room, Norfolk, VA



The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond in partnership with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) will host a half-day event that will provide community-based organizations (CBOs) the opportunity to talk one-on-one with bank community development/CRA representatives and provide them information about their organization, the CRA-eligible activities they perform, and the support a bank might provide to enhance their programs. The event will also include a banker’s panel that will address how banks manage their CRA programs.

A special feature of this event will be a one-hour session in which attending CBOs may opt to make a three- to five-minute presentation about their organization to all that attend.  This session will facilitate partnering opportunities between CBOs with similar or complementary missions. A maximum of 20 organizations may present and will be selected on a first come, first served basis.

CBOs that attend should be prepared to talk with and provide documents to participating banks. Both regional and community banks have agreed to participate, including Bank of Hampton Roads, BB&T, Heritage Bank, Stellar One Bank, SunTrust Bank and TowneBank. Documentation should include: organization history, mission statement, business plan, details on existing services (types of services, number served, income status of clients, area served, actual or anticipated outcomes), financials, Annual Report, Board members and detail on the type of bank assistance that is needed.

There is no cost to attend. Registration is required.
