Staying Connected Calls
Register now for Childcare, Charter School, and Rural Microenterprise Finance on November 19, 2009. Staying Connected Calls are an opportunity for OFN and its members to share information on current issues. Each call is dedicated to a single issue.
Though much of OFN's policy work focuses on industry wide resources such as the CDFI Fund, we're also active in shaping targeted resources for CDFI financing “niches” including charter schools, childcare facilities, and microenterprise. Join OFN policy staff and guest Corey Carlisle, Chair of the Charter School Lenders Coalition and LIIF Public Policy Director, to discuss current activity on these issues.
All calls will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern Time and end by 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

On October 15th, Cheryl Neas, OFN Senior Vice Present for Policy, hosted a call on CDFI Fund Reports. The call was an opportunity to share experiences as CDFIs reported for the first time under www.Federalreporting.gov. All calls are recorded and posted as Podcasts.
CARS™ Unveils new subscription plan for investors.
CARS™ is introducing a new annual subscription that provides unlimited access to all the CARS™ ratings and reports in our data base and any new ones issued during the 12-month subscription period.
With an annual subscription, investors will have the ability to sort the CARS™ database and explore new investment opportunities without worrying about exceeding their subscription limit.
Beginning January 1, 2010, current full-subscribers will automatically have access to all CARS™ ratings reports for the remainder of their subscription period. The renewal price for the annual subscription is $15,000—the same as the current full subscription.
And for a limited time, investors that are new to CARS™ and existing 3-pak subscribers can try the new annual subscription for the introductory price of $10,000.
Effective January 1, 2010, CARS™ will no longer offer a full (10-pak subscription) and the price of a 3-pak will increase to $7,000.
Contact Paige Chapel at pchapel@CARSratingsystem.net for more information.
