The Delaware County Press Club is a member organization of working and retired professionals in the fields of communications, print and broadcast journalism, public relations, marketing, writing and photojournalism, and communications educators and students.
The Delaware County Press Club is a reciprocal club of the National Press Club.
To facilitate career advancement among professionals in communications by building relationships, keeping current on industry trends and encouraging excellence among future communicators.
"I cherish friendships made through the Press Club. It's been a special part of my life since my first meeting at It's About Thyme in Media, when a belly dancer performed (hey, it's a form of communication, right?!).
Being membership chair, treasurer, vice president and president gave me a unique perspective on the club and the importance of its many dedicated members. My memories are many, but one that stands out is the relief (and gratitude!) felt when we reached one of our goals: the full endowment of the Crist Memorial Scholarship at DCCC."
- Bette Alburger, Press Club President, 1998-2001
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Welcome to the Delaware County Press Club!
As I begin my last season as president, I can look back over the past three seasons with pride that we were able to increase our Annual Award in Communications Excellence; present a variety of both informative media-related topics and entertaining speakers that appealed to both members and nonmembers; and develop new community partners.
The Board has exciting events scheduled for the 2023-2024 season. In addition to our luncheon programs, we’ve planned Happy Hours and hope to schedule a few Behind-the-Scenes Tours.
The Press Club has been a leader and valuable resource for journalists, broadcasters, writers, and marketing professionals since 1979. As the journalistic profession continues to change, we’re committed to mentoring future communicators. And as the free press comes under fire, we encourage young journalists to band together with like-minded professionals and support organizations like the Press Club that promote ethical behavior and the highest standards in communications.
Leading this prestigious professional organization has been an honor! I thank you for your membership and continued support! If you’re a communications professional and not a member yet, please consider attending an event to find out more about what the Delaware County Press Club can offer you.
Andrea DiFabio, President
The Delaware County Press Club
