Carbondale Business Confluence – Interactive Virtual Event

October 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Carbondale Business Confluence will come together in a new interactive virtual format, indicative of the times, on Wednesday, October 21st from noon to 2 p.m. “The focus will be to inspire, give hope, and share strengths, struggles, and shifts as we explore ‘Carbondale through Change – an Evolution of Community,’” notes Carbondale Chamber Executive Director Andrea Stewart. 

Highlights will include: updates from Town of Carbondale Mayor Dan Richardson and Garfield County Commissioner Tom Jankovsky; HealthCare/COVID-19 information; and a wonderful local perspective of surviving the challenges of COVID-19 with Eaden Shantay, owner of True Nature Healing Arts.

The Confluence will culminate with a panel discussion: “Conversations on Change through COVID” – a dynamic sharing of relatable struggles, strengths, and pivot points while reflecting on changes since the beginning of 2020.
Panelists will be:

  • Briston Peterson of Carbondale Marketplace

  • Samuel Bernal of Entravision Communications 

  • Beatriz Soto of Wilderness Workshop

  • Amy Kimberly of Carbondale Arts & Carbondale Creative District

The Panel conversation will be moderated by Steve Skadron, Colorado Mountain College Vice President and Dean, Aspen and Carbondale campuses.
