EERPF agreed to co-sponsor a two-day government relations workshop.
Despite this public attack, EERPF's work has clearly succeeded.
In EERPF's successes lie lessons for other American associations that wish to assist their counterparts in Central and Eastern Europe.
EERPF channels USAID grant money to associations that agree to accept American-style bylaws, democratic structures, and codes of ethics.
But instead of a large, permanent subsidy EERPF awards small grants, usually in the $5,000 to $7,000 range, that will end after 1998.
academics as consultants, EERPF often sends real estate practitioners to teach the Central and Eastern European associations about the profession.
