Become an Agenda Member today.

Since 2015, Charlotte Agenda has delivered daily news and lifestyle content. But we want to go deeper and we’re asking for your support.

We recently added veteran journalists Michael Graff and Katie Peralta to the team. We’re committed to breaking more news and covering things you care about.

The truth is that a completely ad-based business model alone doesn’t provide an economic incentive to do this. And we’re going to keep our work available to all – no paywall.

Your membership will help us do more stories like these:

With more members, we can hire more journalists. We’re not copying another model here; we’re building a modern media organization for Charlotte, by Charlotte. And we hope you’ll join us.

Ted Williams
Founder & CEO, Charlotte Agenda

What do I get as an Agenda member?

Agenda members will receive insider notes from our editors, a copy of City Notes delivered to your doorstep, birthday shout-outs, early access to events, entry into our annual NCAA Bracket Challenge, and other fun surprises — but that’s not why you should join. You should join because you want to support the work. Breaking news and deeply reported stories are expensive. The more money we generate from members like you, the more journalists we will hire and the more stories we can produce that'll give you a better understanding of your city.

Who is responsible for the reporting enabled by my support?

The Agenda's new Managing Editor Michael Graff is responsible. His work has appeared in publications around the world — ESPN, The Guardian, Garden & Gun, and POLITICO. He’s also been the editor of Charlotte magazine and a senior editor at Our State magazine. He’s a die-hard believer in this city and North Carolina.

How do I renew my Charlotte Agenda membership or edit my information?

You can easily change account settings from your member dashboard — login here. Monthly memberships will renew every month, and annual memberships once a year on the date that you sign up. If you have additional questions, send an email to membership@charlotteagenda.com. We respond fast.

How do I cancel my Charlotte Agenda membership?

It’s easy. Just login to your membership dashboard and turn off auto-renewal. We do not issue returns for memberships. If you have additional questions or would like us to manually cancel your membership, send an email to membership@charlotteagenda.com. No questions asked. We'll take care of it fast.
