CHAPTER DIRECTOR BIO:

 

Brian Urie is a certified financial planner and a proud father of three. Urie has become disgusted with the outrageous and lurid programming being shown on television.  He fears that the constant barrage of violence and sex is harming tomorrow’s future. Through Urie’s leadership, the SLC Chapter will continue to aid parents who feel lost against the Goliath of the entertainment industry by educating the public and encouraging activism.

 

Urie will create a strong voice for parents in his community.  “While interviewing a Boy Scout for a merit badge recently, he taught me that when a musical instrument is in tune, it produces more volume.   Similarly, when all concerned parents’ voices are united, it's difficult for decision makers to ignore the volume.  I decided to get involved because the PTC struck me as the loudest voice that was in tune with my own thoughts and desires for television network programming,” Urie said.
