Why are these CAN DOs so Special? And, why have we been blessed to operate them?

BECAUSE….

Over the years, perhaps 20 or more now, we’ve had 3-4 each and every year. And, we have yet to have one that was a dud. We’ve had them in the West (where we once lived), in the Midwest (where we never lived), and the East (where we once lived), and the South (where we now live). Where were they best received? They were "best received” where ever we had them.

That’s not a cop out. Every one of them had their "specialness”. But, they were all based on a common theme "inclusiveness”. We preach "maximum practicable utilization of firms owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals”. Folk have placed the formal title, "Diversity” on this habit that we try to make universal.

This upcoming CAN DO in Las Vegas is entitled High Speed Rail & Diversity. It will concentrate on High Speed Rail in general and XpressWest Rail in particular. But, expect it to cover things like the SBA 8(A) Program. And, the Mentor/Protégé Programs at DoD, DOT, and SBA.

You see "Inclusiveness” involves "capability” and "capacity”. Goals can be set, but they cannot be met, if there is not ample numbers of "firms owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals”. And, from experience we have determined that there is often a scarcity of such firms that are ready willing and able. Why is that? Well, often it has to do with folk in the community not being aware what is available to them.

We will have folk from SBA, UNLV and other organizations who will address that need. In addition, we will have SDBs (Small Disadvantaged Businesses) on the program and in the audience who will address the issue. We will talk about "building capacity”, "access to capital” and other things that some try to talk about but never seem to get it across to the participants. Why is that?

To us at NASDB it is simple. We talk with people, not "at” them. Our CAN DOs are a participatory experience. We don’t lecture. If you’ve been to one of our CAN DOs, then you already know. If you’re just coming to your first CAN DO, then, you’ll soon find out.

See you in Vegas, May 23rd……
