Going it Alone: Member Roundtable on Freelancing
Are you working for yourself? Thinking about it? Have tips or experiences worth passing on? Pull up a chair at our first AIGA West Michigan Member Roundtable of the year, and join a lively discussion on the ups, downs, hows, and whys of freelancing with Kate Hunt, Ray Brown, Taylor Vanden Hoek and Karin Lannon. 
$8.00 gets you a seat at the table, your first round of drinks, and pizza from Brick Road Pizza. Come ready to talk about building your client base, setting your rate, managing your time, getting paid, collaborating with other independent creatives, and handling taxes and insurance on your own. We also want to hear how AIGA West Michigan can support you as a freelancer. 
Space is limited to just 15 people, so RSVP now to reserve your spot! 
Roundtables: What are they all about? 
AIGA West Michigan Roundtables are a new series of casual discussions meant to give our members a more active voice in our local chapter. Each event is focused on a specific topic related to design--often suggested by one of our members. We've reached out to a few people in our chapter to help lead these discussions, but we encourage anyone else with an interest or experience in these subjects to reach out to us. 
Every event will be different, but whatever the subject and group of people, we hope you'll come away with a few takeaways: More connections in the community. More awareness of what your creative peers are doing. And more knowledge that is relevant to your discipline. 
We'll be posting what we learn online so our own members, other chapters, and the national board of directors, can share in these insights, too. These discussions can help shape the future of AIGA in our community as well as at the national level. 
We look forward to talking together!
