It’s election season, and an opportunity to bring your voice to the Orange County Press Club Board of Directors.
Voting will happen in the last week of September, but starting now you can add your name as a candidate.
Candidates are asked to email [email protected] with their name, employer/news organization, a short bio and candidate statement (laying out your ideas, values, or anything you think might connect with voters) by Sept. 22.
All candidates must be current on membership dues: $25 for journalists and $50 for PR professionals/non-journalists.
On top of planning the Press Club’s annual awards gala, board members also host networking and informational events throughout the year for members. The volunteer board works alongside groups throughout California to advocate for press freedom and other issues important to journalists in Orange County. The Board also stewards the next generation of journalists by sponsoring scholarships and fellowships for high school and college students.
The Press Club is looking for journalists from across a variety of mediums, publications and backgrounds to help further this mission. Freelancers and journalism educators are welcome to enter.
Please send any questions about the process to [email protected].
Vice President, 2022-23 Orange County Press Club Board of Directors
