Executive Director Pat Frew has announced the date and location:  THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2023, AT THE NORTHERN KENTUCKY CONVENTION CENTER, 5:30-8PM.

The theme is “Finding Your Way,” which serves as a nod to all the development that is changing the landscape of Northern Kentucky’s largest City on the Riverfront. What with the Covington Central Riverfront Project taking shape along 23 acres formerly occupied by the Internal Revenue Service. Add to that, the CBC’s timely effort with meetNKY and the City of Covington to create wayfinding and signage along Madison Avenue from the riverfront to the Central Business District.
