About / FAQ

What is SPARK?

SPARK is our monthly member meetup for freelancers to come together, learn stuff, and build a fantastic local community. We started SPARK as a way to enable our members to network and grow their careers.

I can’t attend! Is SPARK recorded?

SPARK is a member-led workshop, and thrives on good conversation amongst peers. Since there’s not a “presentation” at each event, we don’t record the series.

What topics does SPARK cover?

SPARK helps freelancers educate themselves on topics relevant to building their business, getting new clients, doing their taxes, and more.

Our monthly workshops offer an amazing opportunity to connect with new and experienced freelancers!

Can my business sponsor SPARK?

We happily work with freelance-friendly businesses interested in sponsoring our events on a national level. Email partnerships@freelancersunion.org to learn more.
