REAP Staff to Attend AEO Conference

Portland, Oregon will be the setting for the 2005 Association for Enterprise Opportunity (AEO) Conference on May 10-13, 2005. The majority of REAP staff will attend this training event.

The AEO Conference is the best opportunity for us to learn about the newest innovations in microenterprise programming; expand our skills related to existing program offerings; and network with an international attendance of other practitioners, programs, and funders. The REAP program is respected both nationally and internationally. Many of the programs in the U.S. were derived in part by examining REAPís model.

This respect is totally in relation to the dynamic entrepreneurs who participate with REAP. This participation makes REAP a great program and is the motivation that drives us all.

We will do our best to continue providing an innovative program for our clients. Information from the AEO conference will be reviewed and used to enhance the services you receive and to provide the rural entrepreneurs in Nebraska with the best microenterprise development services possible.
