April 15, 2021: A Conversation with Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward

Mayor Woodward took office just months before the pandemic changed everyone's lives. We will talk to her about navigating the pandemic as Spokane's leader, her top accomplishments in 2020, her priorities for the coming year, what's happening in our city, and ask questions submitted by members prior to the meeting. It is sure to be informative and interesting.

April 22, 2021: School of Rock - Metallica, and SCC

Join us to hear Dr. Kevin Brockbank, President of Spokane Community College.  SCC has been bestowed not 1, but 2 grants from the Metallica  Foundation.  Yes, that's right, Metallica, the Heavy Metal Rock Band! 

The band created the All within my Hands Foundation several years ago to do something good with the vast sums of money the band has garnered over the years.  SCC was one of 10 Trade School-oriented colleges to secure a $100,000 grant in 2018, followed by a second grant of $50,000 in 2019 to further the goal of helping disadvantaged students get a college degree.  Dr. Brockbank will give his high-energy presentation about SCC, how he procured, and what the school did with the grants, plus,  how the North Spokane Corridor is affecting the campus.
Program coordinated by Mark Barnes.

April 29, 2021: Rock-solid ROI: Spokane's return on investment in their public library

Mark will give a condensed overview of Spokane Public Library's unique set of business research tools. In having access to the resources available on www.spokanebusiness.org, our region's businesses have an information advantage over most other communities around the nation. Let's put it to good use.
In addition, Mark will zoom out a bit and share his view of the state of public libraries and where such an institution fits in the 2020 information landscape.
Program coordinated by Kevin O'Connor
