Want to make more money this year and better prepare for your future?

The Gallery @ Packard Place is excited to host the first 2013 Meetup around these issues. The Money Meetup will be an informal discussion with three knowledgeable, passionate and very personable experts.

This free event is open to artists and other entrepreneurs interested in learning more from Chris Horner about negotiating; Ellen R. Linares about financial planning; and Shay Prosser about credit and cash flow. We’ll begin and end with networking opportunities and in the middle, engage in meaningful conversation - panel discussion style.

Note if you email gallery curator Carmella Jarvi ([masked]) by Tuesday, Feb. 5, she’ll send you a pass for free parking. (Supplies are limited and only pre-registered folks will get parking pass.)

The Gallery @ Packard Place is an uptown venue for local innovative artwork. Artists exhibit & sell their work in a business community setting. Gallery programming addresses intersection of art and business.
