Webinar: Advocacy Day Prep & Policy Updates

Join us for this month’s Third Thursday Webinar – “Advocacy Day Prep & Policy Updates” on April 18, 2018 at 2:00 pm.
With so much going on in Washington and Sacramento, we have gathered our policy friends to keep you informed of all the excitement. This webinar will prep you for our Advocacy Day later in the spring when we will advocate in Sacramento for small and micro-business issues. Get training on how best to conduct your meeting, what to say and be briefed on the issues.

25 Reasons to Value CAMEO

As we reflect on our 25 years of work in the sector, we are highlighting 25 reasons (or more!) to value CAMEO.
Reason #3: CAMEO develops programs that respond to members’ needs for training and other capacity building, such as our seminars and monthly webinars.
P.S. If you’re interested in sponsoring our West Coast Micro Business Conference in September, please reach out to Carolina.

Take Action: April Recess

Congress goes on recess from April 15-27, 2019. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to engage with lawmakers in your home district and advocate and promote our vision of economic opportunity for all entrepreneurs.
