Local Investment Strategies webinar series

Sorry to bombard your inboxes this morning!! I've been out of the office for 2 weeks, and I'm just now cleaning out my mailbox. This should be one of the final emails I send to the listserve.

Wealth Creation and Rural Livelihoods (WCRL) formed out of a national conference held in the fall of 2011. It currently serves as a social network platform for sharing information and resources about and related to wealth creation in rural America. To access the site, you will need to register – which is free and painless! (Your contact information will not be sold or shared.) I would encourage you to check out the opportunities mentioned below, specifically, regarding local investment strategies.
