Charter signing set for new press club
The Youngstown Press Club Board of Governors will host a charter signing event at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the McDonough Museum on the Youngstown State University campus. The concept of a press club in Youngstown dates back to the early 1900s, with the last iteration ending in the 1980s. In 2011, a group of Jambar alumni met and decided to restart the club to unite media professionals in the Mahoning Valley through fellowship and education. The charter event is the result of these renewed efforts. Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel will make brief remarks at the charter event. Membership categories include: journalists, authors, educators, public relations associates, advertising associates, students, public sector/nonprofit communicators, and those retired from any of these categories. Dues are $50, but in celebration of the charter signing event, the Youngstown Press Club Board has approved a $35 limited-time membership offer for those joining prior to Dec. 31. Those who join prior to that date will be designated charter members.
