Meet-up for local businesses and local community builders

Written By Courtney Hare, Thrive

Join our monthly meet-up for local businesses and local community builders!

Join us for a new series of community conversations focusing on three things: Supporting local business, supporting community, and understanding how they are connected. Register to attend here. This two hour meeting will take place once per month at Momentum or elsewhere in the community. A light dinner will be provided.

In the first hour we will hear from presenters on local business development, buy local campaigns, the idea of taking mainstreet mainstream, community development and creating neighbourhood vibrancy. The last hour will focus on a discussion or practical activities related to the topic presented. The purpose of the monthly discussions is to provide business owners, residents and communities’ new ideas, strategies and practical tips for strengthening community social and economic resiliency.

This group is being hosted by Thrive, Momentum, and varying partners. Should you attend? If you’re a local business owner, community builder, resident leader, community association member, or community social worker, then YES!
