The participants of the Rang De Conclave 2010
There is no other event that we at Rang De look forward to more than the Rang De Field Partner meet. This time, the presence of our chapter presidents and social investors was the icing on the cake. It completed the Rang De eco-system and brought out very well the intricacies of the Rang De Model. We had field partners from 12 states, chapter members from 4 cities and social investors from different parts of the country at the conclave.
The two day event focused on learning and road-map for us as a network. We touched upon the repercussions of the current microfinance crisis followed by sessions on different aspects of our partnership. These were good ice breakers for the new partners. The key sessions on the agenda included:
- A panel discussion on the current microfinance crisis
- A demonstration and training of our brand new application for our field partners.
- A presentation on the new initiatives to be launched at Rang De
- Sustainability of our field partners
Amidst all our work, the team spent some time in putting this event together and we felt it all ended too quickly. In the end we saw some great bonding between the team, the field partners and the chapter members. The Rang De Conclave was a perfect way to bid good bye to the previous year and welcome a new era of our partnerships!
