Partners for the Common Good (PCG) congratulates our very own Carla Mannings, Chief Program Development Officer, for her OFN 2016 Board Candidacy! As a prospective OFN Board Member, she brings over 20 years of banking and CDFI experience. At PCG, Carla serves in a leadership capacity for program and business development across our lending, CapNexus platform, and other program initiatives.
Prior to joining PCG, Carla served as a Relationship Manager for NeighborWorks America where she advised Executive leadership of non-profit organizations, including CDFIs, located throughout the Southeast region of the United States. Other positions include serving as a Commercial Real Estate Loan Officer for Community Housing Capital where Ms. Mannings worked closely with borrowers across the nation through loan origination, underwriting and providing project based technical assistance.
Carla would like to bring her national perspective with experience in building the field; working with all CDFI types – big and small, rural and urban, regulated and non-regulated; and she would like to serve as an active ambassador for OFN to understand, embrace, and effectively communicate to strategies to external allies and members.
If you are attending the 2016 Rethink OFN Conference in Atlanta, please come by PCG’s booth and attend the panel session CDFIs: Adjusting with the Changing Market Demands, which Carla is moderating.
Partners for the Common Good (PCG), is national CDFI participation lender where we partner with other CDFIs to provide capital to low-income people and communities. We are also the owner of CapNexus, a searchable, online database and networking tool that matches community development transactions to mission focused capital. PCG is recognized for managing the Community Development Bankers Association (CDBA), a national trade association of the community development bank sector which educates policymakers, regulators, legislators, and the general public on the importance of CDFIs and low-income communities.
Please join PCG in supporting Carla in her efforts to represent the interests of the Membership OFN and its mission and strategy!
