What: Have you always wanted to invest your money locally? You are a small scale investor and you want more options than Wall Street provides? You want your investment dollars to work right in your own community? Join the Great Lakes Bioneers for Michael Shuman's provocative presentation on the importance of keeping your investments as local as possible. Shuman reveals the economic power of local investing and reviews the top 22 rules for making the local investment scene work.
