2012 National Development Finance Summit - Post Page

CDFA was in Washington, DC for the 2012 National Development Finance Summit. The National Summit was held at The Fairmont Washington, DC from July 31 - August 3, 2012.

CDFA has provided the presentations from the 2012 National Development Finance Summit for downloading and review. These presentations have been posted as CDFA has obtained them. Some sessions did not have electronic presentations, therefore, not all sessions are represented.

Please note that, in many cases, the downloadable files are very large and could take a few minutes to open. Due to the size of these files, CDFA is not able to email presentations directly to individuals. Please contact the speaker directly to request an emailed electronic copy, or save the presentations from the CDFA website.
