    On February 20, CMC will host our third annual State of Downtown, a popular forum where key downtown stakeholders discuss what's coming into the area, what's being built, and what might be the Next Big Thing downtown.

    Marc Conte (Deputy Director of Research, Planning and Facilities at Capital Crossroads and Discovery Special Improvement Districts) will present findings from the organization's State of Downtown Report, which provides spotlights and data about major investments, housing, employment and office markets, hospitality, and transportation.

    Led by moderator Cleve Ricksecker (Executive Director of Capital Crossroads and Discovery Special Improvement Districts), our panel will feature Melanie Corn, Ed.D. (President of Columbus College of Art and Design), Jessica Mathews (Placemaker/Street Disruptor at Kaufman Development), and Joel Pizzuti (President of The Pizzuti Companies).

    News, especially the printed kind, faces strong headwinds. Fewer customers means declining revenues, and the "new media" and "social media" that is replacing traditional news sources are not beholden to time honored journalistic traditions of truth and integrity. Call "fake news" what it is, propaganda, a powerful tool for despots and dictators. We have a lot to talk about.

    Featuring Beryl Love (Editor and Vice President of News at The Cincinnati Enquirer and Regional Editor for the USA TODAY Network), Alan D. Miller (Editor of The Columbus Dispatch), Christopher Quinn, (President and Editor, Advance Ohio/Cleveland.com), and host Mike Curtin (retired journalist).

    Sponsored by: The Columbus Foundation

    With Support From: Dispatch Media Group


    Regular Entree: Grilled sirloin with sweet potato hash and garlic asparagus. Served with a garden salad.

    Vegetarian Entree: Black bean veggie burger and fries. Served with a garden salad.
