    Have you heard the term " Opportunity Zones" and been interested to learn more? Are you an impact investor already in the OZ & place-based investment space? Wondering how COVID is going to have an affect on OZ investments? 

    Join Impact Capital Forum online at 2pm EDT, June 30th, for a fireside chat with Steve Glickman, one of chief architects of the original OZ legislation to glean valuable insight into the evolving landscape of OZ's during COVID, changing tax filing extensions etc. The IRS has extended deadlines for our tax filings, 1031s, and Opportunity Zones. But what do these extensions really mean for our Opportunity Zone deadlines? Will the government be issuing any more extensions? Has this stalled progress towards improving the most economically distressed communities in the U.S.? Hear from the OG of the legislation himself, Steve Glickman.

Steve sits on Georgetown's Board of Governors and the Board of The NewDEAL, and previously served in the Obama Administration from 2008-2013 as a senior economic advisor. Steve also held the position of Deputy Associate Counsel at the White House, as well Chief of Staff for the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service at the U.S. Department of Commerce.
