SAGES is an organization that is open to all parishioners. Each month during the academic year we meet over lunch (a $5.00 offering is requested) and host a speaker. This month we will host Charlene Bisson, the Arizona group publisher for Independent Newsmedia. She will be discussing the future of community journalism.

The Future of Community Journalism

Learn why community newspapers have a bright future ahead, bucking the industry trend, as they become the No. 1 and often sole provider of local news content to their readers. Charlene Bisson is Arizona group publisher for Independent Newsmedia, and she oversees operations for the Scottsdale and Paradise Valley Independents as well as a daily paper and eight other community papers throughout the Valley.
