More about LFA Member Gatherings:

Local First Arizona hosts rotating member gatherings all around the state every month. Unlike your typical mixer, you won’t be shuffling business cards and hoping for leads. Rather, we are in the business of creating meaningful, genuine connections that build trust, loyalty, and business opportunities. Each event is carefully curated to bring out the best of Arizona, and connect members in a fun, casual setting.

Refreshments and networking are paired with an energetic presentation on LFA news, events, and our statewide initiatives. Businesses in attendance are welcome to bring an item to donate towards the raffle.

More about Bright Side Bookshop:


Purchased in 2017 by long-time Flagstaff locals Annette Avery and husband & wife duo Ben Shaffer and Lisa Lamberson with the intention of developing a dynamic and versatile space for community interaction and events.


Long held as a crucial community resource and gathering space for locals and visitors alike, the independent bookstore has dwindled in recent years in the shadow of impersonal and sterile "chain bookstores." The owners of Bright Side Bookshop have taken it upon themselves to uphold the mantle of a "community hub" for every resident and traveler looking for a place to find quality products, books, events, and regional information. Located in the heart of Downtown Flagstaff, Bright Side Bookshop is a must-see destination for anyone looking to immerse themselves deeper into the soul of Flagstaff.
