Programming on WCLK is made possible in part by support from the Atlanta Business League, presenting their 38th Annual CEO Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday May 10 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel Downtown. This event benefits the expansion of ABL's Youth Entrepreneur Programs and the Business Enrichment Series for Entrepreneur Development. WCLK will be attending this event, and we encourage all of our members to consider doing the same.
