Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Monday, July 20 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to discuss professional development and career plans with June's featured guest, Kristin Faust, President of Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago, Inc.

As president of NHS, Kristin Faust is responsible for providing visionary and creative leadership to address the changing needs of the communities and populations that are served by the organization. Additionally, she is charged with ensuring financial and fiscal management of the organization and diversifying NHS' lines of business and programs as well as funding sources to ensure its ongoing success. Before joining NHS, Ms. Faust was the Chief Credit Officer at Partners for the Common Good in Washington, DC. In the position, she was responsible for overseeing a $27,000,000 loan fund and using collaborative strategies to co-lend with over 35 CDFI lending partners across the county. Prior to that, Ms. Faust spent five years as President of the Enterprise Community Loan Fund, providing strategic leadership for a $250 million financial institution specializing in acquisition and predevelopment financing for developers of affordable housing.  Ms. Faust has nearly 15 years of community banking experience in Chicago, rising to the position of Senior Vice President and Division Head for Community Development at LaSalle National Bank. She was named a Mayor’s Fellow for the City of Chicago, a member of Crain’s Chicago Business Forty Under 40 and is a recent graduate of the inaugural class of the Citi Leadership Program for Opportunity Finance.

This is a members-only event limited to five participants. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches.

As with every WP+D Small Networking Lunch, registration will open at 12:00 p.m. the first day of the month during which the lunch will be held.  Registrations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis and typically fill up quickly.

Due to the popularity of these lunches, we ask that members register for no more than two consecutive lunches. If you have attended the past two lunches and are interested in attending this event, please e-mail us at wpdchicago@gmail.com asking to be put on the waitlist. If spaces become available or registration isn't full a week in advance, we will contact you.
