BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA, February 15, 2009 – Trying to ensure every Small and medium business (SMB) technology consultant and channel partner can participate in professional education opportunities, SMB Nation has announced its “SMB Nation Bank – Student Loan Program.” Citing an attempt to thaw frozen credit markets, CEO Harry Brelsford from SMB Nation commented “Now more than ever, our tribal members need to learn more business and technology skills. Times of economic change often create the greatest opportunity and technology solutions, delivered by SMB consultants with current skills sets, are key to both renewed and on-going professional success”
The SMB Nation Bank – Student Loan Program specifics are:
• Instant loan approval to any SMB Nation tribal member seeking to attend a SMB Nation-specific event using the student loan program. SMB consultants and channel partners may join the SMB Nation tribe at http://www.smbnation.com. The no-interest loan is only for SMB Nation event admission fees.
• $99 monthly payments. For example, three (3) payments of $99 would pay for the early bird admission fee to SMB Nation Spring 2009 (May 1-3, 2009, New York City-area)
“We are banking on our tribal members to take advantage of our continuing professional education opportunities like the SMB Nation Spring 2009 multi-day conference.” Added Brelsford. “Education is going to be the key to navigating the future and we believe everyone deserves an educational opportunity.
