Rossland Tech Meetup |  June 19th @ ThoughtExchange | Rossland | British Columbia | Canada

West Koots tech professionals!

Following our great Tech Meetups in Rossland last year we haven’t brought the group back together in 2018 – busy schedules!  But, before everyone breaks for summer, we’re getting together at least once and then will pick up the Meetups again in the fall.

Are you a tech or knowledge worker living in Rossland & Area? Maybe you work as a freelancer, or work remotely?

Are you interested in hooking up with locals to network, collaborate, and work together to improve our community and local economy?

Be sure to join us each month to connect, mingle, network and enjoy what should be a rousing discussion about Growth of the Startup & Remote Work Cultures in our community.

It will include:

  • How to integrate technology and the knowledge workforce into our community, bringing more experience & success to Rossland and where we are already thriving!
  • What challenges come with changing the fabric of our community and how do we tackle that?

As always, there will be snacks (sponsored by KAST) & great company, too!  A big thank you to Kelvin Saldern, Amber Hayes and Joe Boland for helping get the Rossland Tech Meetup back on the calendar!

We look forward to seeing you!
