Join us for the ystark! CEO Meet & Eat on August 19 to connect with Rick Armon, Managing Editor at The Canton Repository. With more than three decades of experience as a journalist, Armon recently joined the Canton Repository. As Managing Editor, he supervises a staff of 40 workers and oversees all of the Stark County newsrooms in the USA TODAY network. We will hear how his passion for the community and his diverse background led him to his current role, where he says his goal is "to help the newspaper educate, entertain, celebrate, and serve as a watchdog." Whether you hold the news in your hand or listen to it as you drive, the coronavirus pandemic and recent social justice issues have shown us that our community needs journalism more than ever. (Fun Fact: He also has written two books on Ohio breweries and is considered an expert in the Ohio beer industry!)

Cost: $15 (Each registered participant will receive a $10 gift card for Royal Docks Brewing Co. // Valid at all Royal Docks locations, including the new Foeder House + Kitchen in Plain Township!)

Registered participants will receive a confirmation prior to the event with instructions on how to join the Zoom session. Please contact if you have questions.
