CWMA Roundtable & Group Discussion ~ Best Practices for Share Sheds & Free Stores

CWMA Roundtable & Group Discussion Event

Best Practices for Share Sheds & Free Stores Roundtable

Let’s break out the good ideas and the not-so-good ideas to help each other learn more about these re-use resources ideas.


Plan to participate! Share your ideas. Tell your colleagues what worked, what has not worked, what may need some tweaking…


Thursday, June 8, 2023 |1:00 – 2:30 PM PST | Virtual Event

CWMA roundtables are around-the-table discussions with members and friends of CWMA who want to share and learn current information from each-other on a particular topic. 
Reuse sheds, virtual share sheds, free stores, reuse-stores, mobile library of stuff … all are a great opportunity to enhance your community reuse. But inspiring volunteers, working within limited space, managing the risk and insurance aspects of these potentially great ideas can be a lot to navigate. 
Topics will flow from the individual updates but we will ensure we touch on the following:
  • Best practices in general
  • Mobile options
  • Volunteer management
