Urban Worker Skillshare April 8 in Vancouver

conference.share.squareCMG Freelance is partnering with the Urban Worker Project to present a day-long workshop and after party for freelance and contract workers to get together, network and share resources.

Join us on Saturday, April 8th from 9:30 to 6 p.m. at Creative Coworkers (343 Railway Street). There will be lawyers, accountants and other experts leading sessions on the business side of self-employment, including seminars on taxes, setting rates, writing contracts, invoicing, getting paid on time and more.

We’ll also talk about the big picture issues we’re facing – like access to affordable housing, benefits, childcare and income security and what we can do to make change.

Participants will leave with a package that includes contract templates, resources useful to freelancers and swag from partnering organizations.

Tickets to the daytime event are $100 with a sliding scale option. For details and to register for the event check out this Eventbrite page.

The after party will be held at the headquarters of the Vancouver Mural Festival (207-877 East Hastings Street) at 7 p.m. Tickets to the after party are being sold separately and can be purchased right here.

CMG Freelance has a limited number of free tickets to give away for both events. If you’d like one of them, you can email Don Genova at freelance@cmg.ca for a promo code. Priority will be given to CMG Freelance and CWA Canada Associate Members. Please include your CMG Freelance membership number in your email and indicate which of the events you’re interested in — the Skillshare, the party, or both.
