2017 Meetings

We’re continuing our tradition of meeting on the third Tuesday of the month at Homestreet Bank at 8200 35th Ave NE, 7 PM in the small back conference room. The Wedgewood Garden Club meets in the main lobby, so just walk past them on the left to the back conference room and you’ll find us! NOTE: No meetings in July or August this year!!

We are actively seeking new members/investors, and also interested in small businesses that need capital, so come check out this local alternative to banking as usual. We network with each other to find lending opportunities, educate ourselves about finances, and inspire each other to invest our savings in local resilience and sustainability. You can come just to learn and there’s absolutely no pressure to participate in lending opportunities.

Hope to see you in 2017!
