December’s general meeting will focus on some new ideas on how to stimulate our local economy. Joining us will be:
Dan Dorsey– from Sonoran Permaculture Guild. Co-founder of Tucson Traders. Did you know Tucson used to have its own local currency? Maybe its time to resurrect a modern version of this concept. Dan will give us some history and thoughts for the future of local currencies.

Ryan Anderson– from habitatmap.org. We’ll see how utilizing community mapping tools can strengthen our economic initiatives.

Frank Ballesteros– Chief Administration Officer- from PPEP Microbusiness and Housing Development Corporation. Micro-financing and small business loans can stimulate new businesses.

All meetings include time for discussion and a questions and answers period. Please join us an exciting evening of exploring new ideas to help our community.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
