Consider this: There has never been a greater flow of relevant information about the beautiful lakeside city of Kirkland than right now. But today, here in 2012, the “media” doesn’t just speak to you -- you can talk back to it.
The two primary entities providing that steady stream of information -- Kirkland Patch and the Kirkland Reporter -- will sit down on Tuesday to talk about what we do and how you can join the conversation.
How Kirkland gets and share its news will be discussed at the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce’s Oct. 9 luncheon meeting at the Woodmark Hotel by Kirkland Patch editor Greg Johnston and Reporter editor Carrie Wood.
The event, in the Olympic Terrace tent at the Woodmark (1200 Carillon Point), is open to the public and begins at 11:30 a.m. The luncheon fee is $30 for chamber members and $35 for non-members.
Patch and the Reporter will each give a 10-minute presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session. Patch operates 15 community news sites in the Puget Sound region, and Patch assistant regional editor Margaret Santjer will also be on hand.
We want to hear what you think about the daily coverage Kirkland Patch provides and how we can improve. We also want to share information on the tools Patch provides, most of them free, so businesses and individuals can get their message out to the community.
Please join us!
