The makeover of the board of directors at the St. Louis Press Club abides, as the new-member-a-month process continues.
Event planner Kevin Smith has been elected to the board, the fifth new board member to join since October, club president Joan Berkman said.
Smith is a managing partner of Big Blue Spark, a Richmond Heights event-planning and production company.
In the past, Smith has orchestrated events for clients such as Downtown STL Inc., Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Gateway to Hope, Mathews-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club and the Regional Arts Commission.
He also is on the board of directors of the nonprofit Kids in the Middle, a family counseling organization.
Since October, the press club's board has also enlisted philanthropist Miran Halen; public relations veteran Sarah Thompson; St. Louis County election commissioner Peggy Barnhart; and media lawyer Joseph E. Martineau.
