Chronogram Conversations is an intimate event where community leaders, influencers, and creative types gather to enjoy discussion around prominent, local issues and present ways to move forward. It’s a friendly environment and a free event.
On December 5, the final Chronogram Conversations of 2018 was held at Scribner's Catskill Lodge. Business owners, artists, bankers, students, other inn proprietors, and those with a keen ear to the groundswell of growth across Greene County arrived eager to listen and share their thoughts.

On Thursday, November 1, the Luminary Media team hosted a rousing Chronogram Conversations event at CO., a co-working space in Rhinebeck, N.Y. More than 140 people came to network, listen, and participate in the discussion on “The State of Independent Regional and Local Media.”
Guests nibbled on delicious Indian fare from Cinnamon restaurant (Rhinebeck) as well as gluten-free desserts from T-Spoon. Angry Orchard brought limited-release hard ciders for sipping; Benmarl Winery sponsored with wine. Brian K. Mahoney, Chronogram’s editorial director, moderated the panel that featured media leaders from around the Valley: Jimmy Buff (Kingston Radio) Geddy Sveikaukas (Ulster Publishing), Mariel Fiori (La Voz), Lisa Green (Rural Intelligence), Gary Chetkoff (WDST) and Jason Stern (Luminary).
The panel was preceded by a wonderful “State of the Media” overview by Jim Friedlich, CEO and executive director of the Lenfest Institute for JournalismInquirer and owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer. A moment of levity—and a highlight of the event—was an exercise with a yogi visiting from India, the founder of “Laughter Yoga.”
Amara Projansky also gave a presentation on Luminary Media's latest journalism project: The River, a Hudson Valley newsroom covering regional issues of national relevance. Learn more about The River here.
Title sponsors for this Conversation included AT&T and Ulster Savings Bank, who each spent a moment sharing their will to support independent business owners. CO and ReThink Local were co-sponsors as well.
