Start out your week with some fresh ideas. Join us for a professional development session on Monday, March 13, at 8:30 am. to learn more about ChatGPT, the application on everyone's minds. The event will be held at Padilla, located at 101 W. Commerce Road in Richmond. We'll start with networking and breakfast, and the panel and Q&A will be held from 9 to 10 a.m.
ChatGPT gained intense popularity virtually immediately following launch on November 30, 2022. Within weeks, students were cheating on college essays, and Ryan Reynolds even used it to write a commercial for Mint Mobile. In January, ChatGPT reached 100 million monthly active users and became the fastest-growing app in history – faster than Instagram, Twitter and TikTok.

To learn out more about this Large Language Model and what it means for communications professionals and beyond, we've assembled a panel of Richmond experts to share their thoughts and experiences:
