What is the Press Club?

People On the Move.

The Press Club is a professional, social and charitable organization of people who make, cover and influence the news. Our members are reporters, editors, news directors, anchors, columnists, professionals in advertising and public relations, and others who may be sources of news. It is a true “umbrella” organization for those in the communications professions.

Seminars and meetings are held at various locations in the metropolitan area.
