Hi Paul and Geoff,
Although the Sustainability Fair is run in conjunction with our annual membership meeting, it is open to the general public. We want to reach as many people in our community as possible, and if it helps them to even take a small step toward sustainability, we're happy.
Here's the link to the application: https://www.missoulafcu.org/media/doc/Sustainability_Fair_Exhibitor_Applicationfillable.pdf
The type of vendors we're looking for are those who have a product or service that the general public would be interested in. Past participants have included Missoula Valley Recycling, PETES, Green Light, FreeCycles, Mountain Water and lots of others, including some non-profits. We usually have about 25 participants, who set up tables/booths to present their business in a trade-show fashion. This year, we're expecting at least 35, as this is the first year we've openly advertised for vendors. We have 200-250 attendees to the event (although with more word out about it, we're expecting it will be in the 300-350 range this year). Attendees this year will receive a reusable shopping bag, a 60-watt equivalent CFL light bulb, and be eligible for some cash drawings throughout the evening. We have refreshments as well.
This year's event will be at MCT. It's free to the public, but there's a small charge to vendors to participate, since this event costs us quite a bit to host.
Geoff--Hoping to see 1KNG there this year too!
