Next week Chuck and Jim will be in the Los Angeles area, our first Strong Towns trip to California since 2012. We're working really hard to get to Northern CA yet this year -- keep your eyes open for that.
KEEP INFORMED ON WHEN WE'LL BE SOMEWHERE NEAR YOU.
SOME STUFF FROM THIS WEEK YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED.
