SND annual workshop: We know where we’re going

Mark your calendars. The next four workshops are set: San Francisco, Charlotte, Toronto, New York.

As you probably know, we’re headed to the City by the Bay on April 7-9, 2016. Frank Mina of the Seattle Times and Elizabeth Burr of the San Francisco Chronicle are spearheading the planning for SND San Francisco, and program announcements will begin in the coming weeks. Space will be limited – register here!

In 2017, SND will return to the South for the first time in a decade, with Charlotte, N.C., playing host. Jon Wile, creative director at the American City Business Journals, will lead the effort, along with Kyle Ellis of ACBJ and Steve Dorsey of the Austin American-Statesman. The Queen City, America’s 16th largest, is home to 2.4 million people and is considered the NASCAR capital of the U.S. We might be spending some time at the NASCAR Hall of Fame — stay tuned.

In 2018, it’s the Big Apple. We’ve already done extensive research into classy-yet-affordable sites and hotel options.

“The last time SND held a workshop in New York City was in 1982,” said SND president Lee Steele. “The board agreed that a return to Manhattan was long overdue.”
