For the past 3.5 years, Collective Agency has had around 50 members and room to grow. There are various staff- and member-initiated activities/events: optional member meetings on the first Wednesday of each month from 2-2:30pm, lunch most weekdays at 12pm, happy hours, people sharing what they're working on and getting input and support, and conversations often, and productive work especially. This is our blog for members to write updates and share pictures. (Click the blog titles to see pictures and the full post.)
