Ohio Land Bank Conference 2017

Richard Cordray delivers the keynote address at the 7th Annual Ohio Land Bank Conference.

Each year, the Ohio Land Bank Conference provides timely and essential information for land bank board members and staff, county and municipal officials, community and economic development officers, community development corporations and all those interested in repurposing vacant and abandoned properties and revitalizing our neighborhoods.

The Seventh Annual Ohio Land Bank Conference was no exception. The conference was held September 11 through 13 at the Crowne Plaza Cleveland at Playhouse Square in Cleveland. The conference featured 30 different sessions, including panel discussions, roundtables, and mobile tours. Richard Cordray, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau delivered our keynote address. Mr. Cordray formerly served as Ohio Attorney General. Prior to that, he served as Ohio Treasurer and Franklin County Treasurer, two elected positions in which he led state and county banking, investment, debt, and financing activities.

We look forward to your participation in the eighth annual conference next year. We’d also like to extend a special thanks to all our sponsors!
