Local Money Summit

Cost: suggested donation of $15 (50% to Operation Fruit Rescue and 50% to e-sage)

Location: The Edmonton Room of the downtown library.

The power of the shop local message has become evident. Yet, we hardly give a thought to other, more important questions. Namely, given global economic uncertainty and the downsides of traditional investing it's time to start talking about how we get a more rewarding and productive experience from our various money related activities like banking, investing and giving.

What we do with our money isn’t something that comes up in casual conversation yet now, more than ever, this subject requires a frank discussion. If you want to invest, bank, and give in a way that’s ethical, local and helps your community you should come to this event.

There will be four brief presentations and a panel afterwards. The four speakers are

Mark Anielski –The author of the Economics of Happiness will explore the subject of local GICs

Nadine Riopel – How to be a savvy do-gooder. A talk from a former campaign manager with the United Way on how to get the most out of what you give.

Jesse Radies – The founder of Live Local will be fresh off a meeting with the Business Alliance of Local Living Economies. She’ll be delivering a big picture talk on the kind of economic development that Edmonton really needs.

Jeff Senger and Dan Ohler – Will talk about the lessons learned from the Sangudo Opportunities Development Cooperative. The first-of-its-kind investment cooperative leveraged financial capital from local residents to sustain an essential piece of local economic infrastructure.

Duncan Kinney – Host and panel moderator. Director candidate at Servus Credit Union.

The event is free. Everyone is invited and the more financial professionals there the better.

If you are a member of Servus we would encourage you to come out and meet one of the people running to represent you on the board of directors.
