Sustainable NE Seattle and our Local Economy / Local Currency Investing Network
is a Community Partner of Community Capital: Seattle.
We would like to invite you to join us for a locally sourced happy hour, and take a deep dive into how cooperatives are working in our region as a model for business development, local investment, and job creation. The event will feature a panel discussion with Alison Booth from Equal Exchange, Dan Arnett from Central Co-op, Eric Bowman & Ben Gus from the Northwest Co-op Development Center, and others. With Finnriver cider, Treveri sparkling wine, and snacks from Central Co-op, and such great panelists, how could it not be fun?

$20 for a ticket to parts 1 and 2 of the co-op events. Tickets to this panel include admission to "Part 1" on the morning of October 8th, an overview of how cooperatives are being used to strengthen economies across the country, followed by a discussion over coffee and pastries from Poverty Bay Coffee.
The series will also explore local investment clubs; creative community loan models; crowdfunding, CSAs, and pre-sales; community banks, credit unions, and CDFIs; and direct public stock offerings as ways to move money into our local economy.
