February/March 2020 Digital Moose Lounge Newsletter

A newsletter from a fellow Canadian organization in the Bay Area.

The DML has been hard at work planning some great events for the coming year and we can’t wait to share them with you, as well as shine a light on entertainment and events that will warm your Canadian heart! It should come as no surprise that local events might be canceled or postponed over the next month or so.

Save the Date: Women’s Wealth Management
May 8th, 2020
1:30- 4:00 p.m.
Location: TBD
Cost: Free

The Digital Moose Lounge is excited to partner with Project Worth to offer DML members a special 2-hour workshop, designed to educate women on their worth and outline steps to develop an action plan to start managing their financial lives. We will build community and conversation to make this workshop a comfortable place to learn what to do. Attendees will walk away with a better-defined wealth path and more confidence to know where and how to get advice and support.

Project Worth is co-founded by Heather Pelant, a fellow Canadian and a Partner at Baker Street Advisors.

This event will be limited to 30 spots. If you are interested, please add your name to the priority list and reserve a spot on Eventbrite here. We will share more details in the coming weeks.

There was a realization that this is a pretty significant economic shift that is taking place, when we looked around at how the industry is responding and how women are responding, we found two things. One, the industry is lacking a really good engagement model for women. And two, women were not stepping into it.” – Heather Pelant, Co-Founder, Project Worth

Hockey! Hockey! Hockey!
The Digital Moose Lounge hosted not one, but TWO, hockey game socials in February and March. First, the Canucks came to town, then the Leafs came to San Jose for their one and only regular-season appearance. Although the Sharks won both games against the two Canadian franchises, a great time was had by all. Thank you to all the volunteers who made these events a success. And a big thank you to our event sponsors and partners: the Canadian Consulate, One Capital Management, RBC USA, and BC Trade and Invest.
