About the National Development Finance Summit

The 2013 CDFA National Development Finance Summit will be an extraordinary, can’t miss event with an in-depth look at development finance in the United States. This special program will provide more opportunities than ever before for attendees to engage in a diverse cross-section of development finance topics, federal engagements, and legislative activities.

This year’s National Summit will examine the role of the federal government in supporting job creation and business investment and bring together the top federal leaders to address the challenges facing our nation’s economy. The National Summit will also include the unique opportunity for attendees to participate in CDFA’s Capitol Hill Day as we deliver the development finance message to Congress.

Designed to educate both novices and seasoned development finance professionals alike, the 2013 National Development Finance Summit will touch on over 25 different financing concepts, tools, programs, strategies, and solutions to the financing opportunities facing our communities.

The National Summit will feature general sessions with top public and private sector leaders discussing investment, access to capital, and innovative funding mechanisms. Drilldown sessions will focus on the application of the most cutting-edge structures at the local level with an emphasis on best practices, problem solving, capital formation, and economic growth.

Finally, this year’s National Summit will feature CDFA’s highly acclaimed Intro Public-Private Partnership (P3) Finance Course as a pre-Summit training option and a new Pre-Summit Workshop focused on the basics of financing local food systems in communities. Receptions and fun-filled activities including live national webcasts, walking and running tours, and dinning adventures will be featured throughout the 2013 National Development Finance Summit.

Don’t miss out! Join us for the 2013 CDFA National Development Finance Summit in Washington, DC this August 6-9.
