New Members, New Events and New Progress


We are looking forward to our Annual Membership Meeting on August 8 at the KERA studios. Details of this free event are included in this newsletter as well as the club’s website and Facebook page. You should have received an email invite so please make sure your information is current in the club’s membership system.    

What takes place at the Annual Membership Meeting? A lot. In addition to networking and catching up with fellow members, we will recap another successful year for the club, say goodbye to long-time board members, welcome new board members and a new President, plus announce the 2016 Press Club of Dallas Foundation Journalism Scholarship Grants.  

We encourage you to RSVP as soon as possible so we have a proper headcount and don’t run out of beer, wine, or food. Thanks for your membership, we hope to see you there.
