Community Conversations


Member-only Program:

Come join with other Provender members twice a month for gatherings of peer-to-peer, Community Conversations. (We meet on Zoom.) These educational gatherings are lively, stimulating, and a great way to connect with both new and familiar faces!

At the start of each meeting, we’ll seed the conversation with a particular subject and broaden it into additional topics. We discuss actions that members are taking to address the upending of business practices.

Topics range from the continuing impact of COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, which networking framework will replace Trade Shows, the future of bulk bins, shifting retail landscape, how to create more virtual connections with customers, fair trade and social justice, supply chain disruptions, staff safety, manufacturing, and more.

Learn from and share what you know with like-minded members of the Provender Community during a lunchtime gathering.  Your voice matters; everyone gets a seat at the table. This is the Provender community brain trust at its best!

If you have questions about attending, please email us or call the Provender office at (503) 859-3600.
