The First CAMEO Summit: A Recap

CAMEO staff at the 2023 CAMEO Summit

The 2023 CAMEO Summit (our very first one!) was a resounding success – all thanks to our attendees, sponsors, volunteers, and of course, staff. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who made the trip to downtown Sacramento for Advocacy Day, MicroLenders Forum, or both. It is a testament to the commitment of our network to address the issues and challenges facing entrepreneurs each and every day.
