A collective or alliance is a group of spaces in a geographically defined area working separately but together for a common purpose, goal or to solve a common objective.
Who was the first to set a Global Coworking Record for the most people coworking in one place at one time? We were! The Kansas City Coworking Alliance (KCCA) set this record on August 9, 2017 with 196 people all coworking together.
Formed in 2015 the KC Coworking Alliance is a 501c6 nonprofit association whose main purpose is to raise awareness of what Coworking is and what Coworking options are in KC. We also support our current and future Coworking Space owners and operators with sharing best practices and interface with the Press to help spread the word about Coworking and all of the great stories that come out of the KC Coworking Community.
Each year we plan something BIG for KC Coworking Day (also known as International Coworking Day – August 9th) Some fun and unique things that the KC Coworking Alliance has done in the past, besides setting a Global Coworking Record include hosting KC Coworking Week/Day (2015, 2016, 2017), sponsoring 1WeekKC (2015, 2016, 2017), hosting #Cowork4Good during Global Entrepreneurship Week to collect can goods for Harvesters (2015) & bedding for Sleepyhead Beds (2016). http://www.kccoworking.com/cowork-4-good/
We also produced the first Podcast by a Coworking Alliance talking all about our favorite subject, Coworking http://www.kccoworking.com/2016/10/25/in-the-news-kc-coworking-week/
The Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri gave us an official Proclamation for KC Coworking Week and KC Coworking Day!
