Event Description

Our Local Economy/Local Currency Guild is sponsoring two New Member Orientations - one in September and one in October.

This is your chance to find out more about Fourth Corner Exchange, a well established, functioning alternative currency here in the PNW.

At this meeting (which is Free and open to the general public) you can ask lots of questions and choose whether to join as a member.  Annual membership fee is $25 and $5 for a co-member.

Here is your opportunity to try out participating in a type of local currency exchange system and see how it works.
