It was late in November 2018 that I first came out to Issaquah to host a coffee with the editor event.
A handful of people gathered with me on the patio of Issaquah Coffee Company to talk about our local journalism efforts. We discussed what was working, and what wasn’t working. Some people attended to simply ensure their organization ended up on my radar.
I left that day with feedback that I’ve worked to apply to the Issaquah Reporter.
But successful communication doesn’t end with one conversation.
Improvement, too, is a multi-stepped, gradual process. When we feel we’ve reached an apex, it’s time to dig deeper to find more areas for potential improvements.
By no means have we reached an apex at the Issaquah Reporter, but we’re making improvements and always looking to find new areas to focus our energies.
Some six months later, I’m inviting readers and stakeholders to come join me again at Issaquah Coffee Company for coffee and conversation.
If I don’t know you, let’s know each other. If we’re missing a big piece of news in Issaquah, come tell me about it. Let’s keep the conversation going.
My “coffee with the editor event” will be held 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 27, at the Issaquah Coffee Company (317 Northwest Gilman Blvd. #47) in Issaquah.
You bring the conversation, and I’ll buy the coffee.
I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
