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.
