Strategic Management Framework Courses for CDFIs
Last fall, at the Clinton Global Initiative 2022 Meeting, CAMEO made a commitment to develop and launch a National CDFI Academy that would provide professional training and resources to thousands of CDFI staff members across the country.
We are very excited to see the first major track of the National CDFI Academy come to fruition. Our Strategic Management Framework Courses will take place from March 15 through April 5, 2023 as a four-course series. The first course, Overview of a CDFI Strategic Management Framework, is offered as a standalone course as well.

CAMEO is also hiring! We are looking for a VP of Finance and Operations. Please help us spread the word.
