Give Thanks. Give Membership; Microlending Essentials Return; #GivingTuesday

Our thoughts are with the communities around the state that are suffering from the Camp Fire in Butte County and the Hill & Woolsey Fires in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. The SBA is making low-interest federal disaster loans available to California businesses and residents affected by the wildfires in Butte, Los Angeles, and Ventura counties.

Give Thanks. Give Membership.

As the holiday season begins, CAMEO would like to thank its members for creating such a dynamic network of organizations and individuals that support businesses that create local jobs, build wealth, and grow California’s economy through microbusiness development. Renew your membership or join us!

Take advantage of everything we offer. In addition to high-quality programs, your membership dues pay for themselves with free group and individual training opportunities, member meetings, and the priceless benefits of collaboration and support.  One such collaboration is an optional information-sharing agreement that we have with Centro Community Partners. They are collecting much of the same information that we do in order to generate leads for your services. So we’re going to share (if you give us permission) so that you don’t have to enter it twice.  
Thanks for being a part of CAMEO and Happy Thanksgiving!

Microlending Essentials

CAMEO members often ask us where they can send staff for microloan underwriting training. But we didn’t find any that had evolved with current underwriting practices. 
Susan Brown, CAMEO’s microlending specialist, developed a training with input from some of the strongest lenders in the field today.
This two-day training on microlending credit analysis includes discussion and application to several case studies.
Get your tickets for Microlending Essentials in Los Angeles on February 20-21, 2019.



Support CAMEO on #GivingTuesday

We know you value the work that CAMEO does for the sector. That is why we are raising $3,000 on #GivingTuesday, November 27. Your support will make it possible for us to continue advocating for you and serving you with the resources and training you need to excel.
