About the 2015 NADCO Annual Meeting


Basic Information


Join us for NADCO’s 2015 Annual Meeting in New Orleans for the best Annual Meeting yet! This conference is packed with the information that will help you navigate through all the regulations, policy, compliance and eligibility issues facing the 504 CDC industry and keep you on the path to success.

So you attended the Spring Summit in May, and came away with a great deal of information. Now that some time has passed and regulations continue to update, do you have any questions regarding the SMART review process, economic development options, your CDC Board responsibilities, how to improve your SLPC star rating to a 4-Star, executive compensation, avoiding primary OCRM findings, how to position your CDC in a competitive market, the lender portal, and how to improve your approvals? Did you answer yes for any of those subject areas? Then you should be at the Annual Meeting!

NADCO will bring you the experts that can address your questions big and small, and all you need to do is show up.

This is serious people, how often do you get to eat a flying burrito and get a margarita to go? Not only is Juan’s Flying Burrito delicious authentic cuisine but it is a 504 borrower in the 504. That’s right while you are visiting all the amazing things that the 504 area code has to offer, you can support some 504 borrowers. While you’re yumming up on the nachos, tacos, enchiladas and burritos at Juan’s don’t forget to pour some 504 Bulliard’s hot sauce on your tasty treats. Still not convinced that Juan’s is all you needed and then some, then check out their MENU for further inspiration.
