Our version of a skill share: post up at Umpqua's beautiful Fox Tower location and invite the community to hit you up for advice, help or inspiring conversation. Did you know their free community space has a coworking-friendly lounge, conference rooms ... and cookies?

If you'd like to broadcast your office hours, fill out this short form and we'll add you to the roster so others can swing by and visit.

More about this Umpqua Location, from an interview with Workfrom:

What makes your space great for getting work done?
Quiet, comfortable conversation can be enjoyed throughout the space, and anyone in the community can host a private meeting and reserve a conference room, equipped with Skype-enabled flat screens, laptop connectors, and floor-to-ceiling, magnetized dry erase boards. In fact, the entire store can be reserved before or after hours for special events. A giant projector screen is available for presentations to larger audiences.

Additional amenities include complimentary wifi, charging cables, wireless printing, Umpqua’s signature coffee, and an assortment of Smith Tea.

Why do you feel it’s important to support our community of high-mobility workers, students and independent professionals?
We support creativity and entrepreneurship, and want to offer a space where those things can happen. Every business and every idea starts small, and needs a lot of love to grow. We want to help.
Share your experience! #PDXCowork2015 @workfromco
