It’s gratifying to meet Princeton Comment readers at a meeting or social event and hear them say: “What you send is so useful! I would never have known about such and such!”
But it’s making me nervous. Because I’m not and never should be your primary source for news about what meetings to attend. That source should be U.S. 1 Newspaper or its online version, www.princetoninfo.com. That’s what U.S. 1 does — give advance notice, with an article or a listing in the events database.
I just sent out a blog post about the Princeton Chamber luncheon next Thursday with some other dates included in the email. If you depend only on me, you will miss the following, from the princetoninfo.com database. It’s a little tricky, I admit. Business meetings are the very last category in the drop-down selection. But here is what comes directly from that database now — and I’ve linked them to the articles in U.S. 1’s Survival Guide.

So I urge you to check in with the events database. Better yet, get the email newsletter that U.S. 1 issues on Tuesdays before Wednesday publication. It gives links to each story.
You’re reading this, I bet you’re used to getting much of your news online now anyway. To sign up for the newsletter, either hit “reply” and I’ll take care of it, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and put “newsletter” in the subject line.
To get YOUR meeting in the database, or written about, send the details, including price, to Scott Morgan at email@example.com
