REAP Staff Learn Latest Innovations at National Conference

Anaheim, California, was the setting for the 2008 Association for Enterprise Opportunity (AEO) Conference on May 20-23, 2008. Five REAP staff attended the training event.

The AEO Conference, which is now known as the “National Summit on Entrepreneurship” is the best opportunity for REAP staff 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 REAP’s model. This respect is totally in relation to the dynamic entrepreneurs who participate with the REAP program. It is this participation that makes REAP a great program and the motivation that drives us all.

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