Summit Partner Curcio to Moderate Panels at OFN Conference

Next week, Summit Partner Anthony Curcio will moderate two panels at the Opportunity Finance Network’s (OFN's) annual conference in Washington, D.C.

Curcio’s first panel, on September 27 at 2:15 p.m., focuses on evidence-based impact evaluation. Curcio will interview Brian Quinn, Assistant Vice President of Research, Evaluation, and Learning at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Oswaldo Urdapilleta, Ph.D., Director at Summit, and Aliana Pineiro, Research Manager at The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN).

Curcio’s second panel, “The Evolving Need for Housing Counseling,” will focus on the changing risks that drive demand for housing counseling. Curcio will sit down with Lot Diaz, Vice President of Housing and Community Development at Unidos, Sarah Gerecke, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Housing Counseling at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Gene Spencer, Senior Vice President at the Homeownership Preservation Foundation. Curcio’s second panel will begin at 4:15 p.m. on September 27.

“OFN is a thought leader in helping more Americans participate in our market economy. I am so pleased to be a part of that thought leadership," Curcio said. "Housing counseling is an important element of sustainable home ownership, and the use of data to hold our programs accountable is very important. I am looking forward to hearing from these panelists.”

Members of Summit’s mission-oriented finance team will attend the three-day conference, from September 26 to September 28. Conference attendees can visit Summit’s table at the exhibition hall on September 27.
