The Press Club is encouraging its members to run for a seat on the club's Board of Directors. Now is the time to sign up. In November, a ballot will be sent to members. The deadline to return ballots is Dec. 5, the night of the Club's Christmas Party.
The board meets once a month. Its major projects include the Greater Bay Area Journalism Contest, high school awards, high school boot camp and the granting of scholarships. The board maintains this Web site. Board members are often called upon to judge entries in journalism contests in other parts of the country.
The board's five directors serve two-year terms. Its officers (president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer) serve one-year terms. Here is a list of the club's current officers and by-laws.
