Posted October 13, 2020 at 5:30 am by

The Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment Coun­cil of San Juan Coun­ty invites the pub­lic to attend a vir­tu­al dis­cus­sion on the cre­ation of a mak­er­space sys­tem in the islands, from noon‑1 p.m., Fri­day, Oct. 23, in part­ner­ship with the Port of Fri­day Harbor.

Todd Nichol­son, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Port of Fri­day Har­bor, will join Mick­ey von Das­sow, EDC trades coor­di­na­tor, for a con­ver­sa­tion on a poten­tial net­work of local mak­er­spaces that can sup­port entre­pre­neur­ship, edu­ca­tion and inno­va­tion through­out the archipelago.

Nichol­son will give a short pre­sen­ta­tion and Q&A ses­sion about the Port of Fri­day Harbor’s plans for a new Marine Tech­ni­cal Cen­ter, focus­ing on their pro­posed mak­er­space. Fol­low­ing his pre­sen­ta­tion, the group can engage in a dis­cus­sion, and get to know peo­ple with shared goals.

Reg­is­tra­tion is required. Due to pri­va­cy con­cerns, reg­is­tra­tion is lim­it­ed to adults over 18. Please reg­is­ter at www.sanjuansedc.org/makerspacesconvo for this Zoom event.
