The Downtown Spokane Partnership is proud to present “30 Minutes With:”, a recurring series of virtual, 30-minute question and answer sessions with local industry experts on the most pressing topics of the day. Sessions are hosted on Zoom, and free to attend.
In this session, Pia Hallenberg, Chair of the Riverside Neighborhood Council, will discuss how business and property owners can benefit from engaging with their local community and neighborhood.
