Asheville Blogger Society hosts June 26 meetup

Full announcement from the Asheville Blogger Society

Welcome Asheville writers, bloggers, and big-dreamers.

If you have a blog, want a blog, or are big into the social media, come and meet the Asheville Blogger Society.

There is always something happening in Asheville. This is a great way to be connected to the community and make a difference.

Our next get-together is Tuesday, June 26, beginning at 5:30 pm. The meeting will be held in The Railroad Library which is part of the Flood Fine Arts Center.

The space is in the upstairs of The Phil Mechanic Building, 109 Roberts Street, Asheville, NC 28801.

Our meet and greet is from 5:30 to 6pm.

At 6pm, we will introduce our speakers, Pam Lewis of the Asheville-Buncombe Economic Development Coalition, and Troy Tolle. Their talk is entitled “Building a Culture of Entrepreneurship in Asheville.”

Tolle is the Founder and CTO of DigitalChalk. His desire to ignite a passion for education and entrepreneurship has lead him to start a technology accelerator providing mentorship and funding for startups. Troy travels extensively speaking in both public and private gatherings about education and cloud computing.

There is no cost to attend. All are welcome. We do prefer that you RSVP on our Facebook event page, but it’s not required:

If you have never attended a meeting of ABS and wanted to, now is your chance. Come talk to us and see what we’re about. Most ABS meetings have special speakers, guests, and agendas to help keep our bloggers informed. ABS was founded in 2011 by local bloggers as a way to connect Asheville’s blogging community. Its mission is reconnect and re-energize our local writers and share information on being a better blogger.

If you are an area blogger of any age or any level and want to feel part of a connected, larger community, you are invited. The ABS encourages you to come with a few ideas, a few questions, and, of course, a thirst for some delicious local beer.
