Local organizations are looking at a new way to share office space and resources while operating business independently: “Coworking.”
The City of Bellingham, Sustainable Connections, the Technology Alliance Group and Coworking LLC have teamed up to hold a member and community lunch on Feb. 2 on the topic, “a green, affordable, and savvy way to work.”
The event will be held at 1319 Commercial Avenue in Bellingham, above the Uisce Irish Pub.
Guest speaker Renata Kowalczyk is the co-founder of Coworking LLC, and also assists local businesses and organizations in creating more effective work environments and teaches business classes at WCC.
“I’m on a mission to create collaborative coworking spaces that create synergy and value for socially conscious entrepreneurs and remote workers,” Kowalcyzk says.
Modern mobile technology and “anywhere Internet” means that knowledgeable people can work from any location, inspiring a global phenomenon – coworking – event organizers say.
People share high-speed Internet, office machinery and meeting space while networking in a flexible office environment.
This member lunch is open to all Sustainable Connections and TAG members, as well and anyone else in the community who might like to learn more.
ACME Farms & Kitchen will offer a local lunch for $10, starting at 11:45 a.m. Attendees can bring their own lunch too, and the meeting itself is free.
To attend, RSVP Erin McCain-Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 647-7093 x108 and let her know if you would like the lunch option.
