Working Decatur Style
Decatur Coworks invites the community to tour the new facility and celebrate its grand opening on Thursday, April 24 from 4-7pm.

Cofounder, Kimberly Finnegan, states 'the easiest way to describe a coworking space is office suites meets coffee shop.' It is a no risk, no commitment work space that has typical office amenities but a casual community feel. It is a relaxed work environment that encourages collaboration and networking.

Decatur Coworks is downtown Decaturs first coworking environment, located at 708 Church St. Decatur Coworks offers work and meeting space for groups and individuals on a daily or monthly basis.

Promote Your Business And Support Great Educators!
Decatur is a wonderful place to live and one reason is the fabulous teachers/staff of our school system. This year DEF is launching the 'Step-Up for Teachers' campaign to honor our teachers. The campaign includes an opportunity for your business to show its support by offering CSD teachers/staff a special during May - a small discount, a 2-for-1, or some other offer that would welcome teachers to your business.

DEF will supply you with a poster demonstrating your commitment to great educators. Please respond as soon as possible with the specifics of your offer. Email for more information and to sign up.
