‘First Thursday’ conversation (and our birthday!)

At the beginning of each month, the Charlotte chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists meets over food and beverages to talk with a local media leader.

Our guest for August is Desiree Kane, one of the founders of the PPL, which created a co-working space for independent and traditional media in uptown Charlotte during the Democratic National Convention. The group also has plans for round-table discussions, special guests, space for art and creative events. Desiree will give us the details.

Desiree, a communications strategist, is also an adviser to the John and James L. Knight Foundation, one of the early driving forces of CLTBlog and web strategist for Creative Loafing in Charlotte.

One last thing: Frank Barrows will deliver short remarks on the occasion of the first anniversary of our chapter receiving our charter. It’s our birthday!
When: 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2
Where: Dilworth Neighborhood Grille, Morehead room.
Food and/or beverage at your own cost.
