Nestled along the Continental Divide, home to twelve 14-ers, the headwaters of the Arkansas River, and Monarch Mountain; it’s no wonder Chaffee County has become a global gathering place for remote workers in the new digital economy.
But how do you meet each other when most of your days are spent working at home or in coffee shops?
Answer: You join this meetup of other remote workers and meet a bunch of your cool, interesting peers!
Hosted by the Chaffee County EDC and sponsored by Elevation Beer Company, this Happy Hour at the historic Lobby @ Palace Hotel will feature a short moderated discussion on the evolution of remote work opportunities in rural communities. But most importantly, just some good, chill time to network and meet folks like you.
