As Local As Possible

Who We Are

We are an informal group of Northern Michigan citizens seeking to have more local impact and connectedness with our money. We gather once a month for a potluck and to meet local entrepreneurs and learn about their projects. During our meetings, we also share ideas for how we might keep more of our money locally and invested for triple-bottom-line returns (financial, social, and environmental). This is an experiment of sorts with exciting offshoot possibilities, including the spawning of a more formal local investing club. For now, though, those interested in pursuing local investments with other group members or presenting entrepreneurs may do so independently of this ALAP group.

Meetings, Membership & Presenters

Our meetings are open to any individual, although we request that you RSVP so that we can assure sufficient meeting space. We are looking for presenters for our meetings – if you are interested, please email us at
