It’s not an overstatement to say the growing trend toward remote work is reshaping rural towns across the country. That’s certainly true here in Chaffee County and its creating new opportunities for many of us who live here. 
For young people graduating from local schools, location-neutral employment creates new opportunities for high wage employment. For mid-career professionals seeking their next career path here in Chaffee County, remote work opens new doors not available even a few years ago. 

For the community itself, this is a once in a generation opportunity to diversify the economy and retain key workers. 

To support this important segment of our business community, the EDC is launching a new ongoing series of bi-monthly Remote Worker Meetups throughout the County.

Registration for the first two are open now: 

Remote Workers’ Meetup – Salida
December 15, 2021, 4-6 p.m.
Lobby @ Palace Hotel
Register Here

Remote Workers’ Meetup – Buena Vista
December 16, 2021, 4-6 p.m.
Location TBD
Register Here

At these first events, we’ll have a short conversation with one of the EDC’s most important remote work partners, Denver-based Pax8, to talk about their hiring in rural areas like ours.
