National Community Development Lending School
PRACTITIONERS AND REGULATORS, we
have seen hundreds of lending institutions across the nation that
have mastered the art of underwriting loans that benefit their communities
and generate a healthy profit. The 2001 National Community Development
Lending School, July 22–26, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland,
Ohio, is geared to sharing these experiences and practices.
|The school will focus on how to attract and
underwrite community development business that is consistently profitable.
A carefully planned curriculum, taught by experts in their fields,
is designed to help you think like an entrepreneur, manage risk, structure
profitable loans, analyze credit, develop community partnerships and
make sound business decisions for your institution.
In addition to the four-and-a half days
of intensive training, the instructors will share their experiences
in managing community development lending programs, and will discuss
some of the industry’s most pressing challenges. They will also share
their strategies for making community development an integral part
of your institution’s business. Plus, you will have the opportunity
to interact with peers from across the country as you develop a professional
network that will last long after you return to the office.
We are happy to sponsor this innovative
program, and we hope you’ll be able to join us at Case Western Reserve
University in July.
We look forward to seeing you.
