Co-op Bop: A Dance Party
July 20, Queen City Cooperative in Denver
During the 2017 ACE Institute in Denver, party with Queen City &  Colorado Co-op Study Circle! Queen City will feed you, but feel free to bring something to share! You can BYOB or purchase drinks with drink tickets (cocktails, mocktails, beer, & wine). Queen City Cooperative is a resident-owned housing cooperative in Denver. After two years of home improvements, house meetings, and shared dinners, we are formalizing our cooperative structure. We need professional help along the way, so any donations will help us raise funds for legal and accounting fees. Think of it as a barn-raising for co-ops! Attendees may also contribute to the ACE student scholarship fund for the 2018 ACE Institute.

Wanna chat? Our website now has a Slack-like (but open-source and non-spyware) RocketChat system built-in, so come say hi and let’s talk co-ops. It’s still not very active, so mention “@all” to get our attention.

Wanna help organize study circles? Write to circle@coloradocoops.info to get plugged in. We need you.
