Monika Maeckle

Maeckle has worked in media and marketing for more than two decades, most recently as Director of Integrated Communications at CPS Energy.  Prior, she served as a new media executive at Berkshire Hathaway’s Business Wire. Her pragmatic, results-oriented approach, backed by decades in sales and management, combines traditional PR with new media solutions and has won multiple awards from the Society for New Communications Research. Maeckle has a special affection for energy and conservation, manifested  at  the Texas Butterfly Ranch.  You can find her on Twitter @monikam.

Robert Rivard

Rivard’s 35-year career as an award-winning newspaper reporter, editor, and author was capped by 14 years as editor and executive vice president of the San Antonio Express-News. In 2012, Rivard and Maeckle launched the hyperlocal, San Antonio website, The Rivard Report, which became a nonprofit organization in late 2015. Rivard continues to direct the community platform.  He also works as an events moderator, public speaker, advisor and community leader and has a long record of involvement in education initiatives. A quick study and an articulate advocate in English or Spanish, Rivard operates on either side of the border or anywhere in the Americas.
