A note about REI Bar Camp:

In brief, the idea behind a bar camp is that it is an “unconference” – there are no formalized presentations, speeches, sales pitches, or lectures. Instead, bar camp participants decide the topics to be discussed and then real estate investing pros lead discussions about those topics. Attendees learn exactly what they want because they pick the topics for discussion and seasoned real estate investors lead the discussions and answer questions.

A few notes about the Keynote Speaker:
