On October 19th, the Partnership for Financial Equity will hold its first-ever meeting for Community Reinvestment Act officers co-chaired by Vanessa Greene of Cape Cod 5, Tom Golden of Rockland Trust and Delisa Joseph of Needham Bank.
Our CRA Peer Group is simultaneously a network, resource and voice on CRA policy. Through ongoing dialogue with regulators, legislators and community groups, the group will provide CRA officers an opportunity to work with their peers to influence and respond to regulatory and legislative changes, share resources, elevate best practices, and facilitate partnerships with community-based organizations.
Sign up now for the meeting which will take place on October 19th at 10:30 via Zoom.
