Local Common Wealth was founded in 2016 by Keith R Kelsch and his wife Malissa A Kelsch. After several years of research, which culminated in Keith publishing The Political Optimist: The Restoration of Common Consent, Local Common Wealth was created to do two things, build more wealth locally and increase more freedom locally.
Soon after organizing the company, Keith and Malissa began spreading the good news of common consent by organizing the first non-profit business-networking chapter of Local Common Wealth. This chapter is called the Dixie Business Network. Keith and Malissa started working hard to grow the vision with a simple goal to create as many wealth-building networking chapters managed by common consent as possible.
While each chapter of Local Common Wealth is a non-profit trust managed locally by common consent, Local Common Wealth itself is a for-profit organization. Roughly 75% of the annual membership fee stays with the local non-profit chapters while about 25% goes to Local Common Wealth itself to build the technology and grow the vision. This is completely opposite of the typical corporate model that leaves nothing locally.
Local Common Wealth is a wealth-building business networking organization that is run by common consent. Our mission is to create more wealth and more freedom locally. If interested in launching a Common Wealth Networking organization in your community, see us at www.localcommonwealth.org.
