REAP NOTES

AEO Microenterprise Days
While in Washington DC in June, Center for Rural Affairs Administrative Director Gerard Ras (right in photo) and REAP Program Director Jeff Reynolds (left in photo), visited with Nebraska’s Congressional Delegation about the impact of microenterprise development in Nebraska. The two are pictured with Senator Ben Nelson (center in photo). AEO is the national trade association for groups like REAP.

REAP Co-Directors
In September, Glennis McClure began additional duties as a REAP Co-Director alongside Jeff Reynolds, current REAP Program Director. Glennis will continue to hold the title of REAP Women’s Business Center Director and will add more program administrative duties such as staff evaluations and joining the Center for Rural Affairs Program Council, a weekly management meeting.

Glennis will continue to serve the five Southeast Nebraska counties of Richardson, Pawnee, Nemaha, Gage, and Johnson. Monica Braun, the other Southeast Nebraska REAP Business Specialist added Jefferson County to her territory, which was one of McClure’s counties for the last six years. A few other minor territory changes were made with REAP staff. For up-to-date territory information, please view the REAP Region Map on the REAP website at http://www.cfra.org/reap/map.htm
