taking advantage of our state’s generous tax benefits.

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
