Message to CPC Members

Dr. Barbara Arnwine, CPC President

Dear Capital Press Club Members:

As we usher in 2016, I would like to take this moment to thank you all for your membership and support for Capital Press Club.

At the risk of using a cliché, I say with great sincerity that the this professional organization for journalists and communication professionals would not be the where it is today without your dedication and support. The countless voluntary contributions from our members in organizing the diverse list of events we hosted these last few years reflects how vital membership involvement is to the success of the Club. We hope to see that level of support increase in the new year.

The Capital Press Club also hosted a variety of professional development classes geared towards training communication professionals on new techniques and resources needed to keep pace with the changing media environment. Upcoming events in 2016 include how to use digital media techniques and an interactive workshop for self-employed professionals.

As we set our focus on 2016, we welcome your participation in CPC, from assisting with program planning to working with our digital media committee, or simply attending an upcoming meeting or forum. For more information about the Capital Press Club, its upcoming events and getting more involved, check our website. Your feedback is also vital. For questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the membership department at  or (202) 662-7511.

Thank you for making the Capital Press Club THE place where good things happen for  journalists and communications professionals of color. We look forward to serving you.


Dr. Barbara Arnwine

CPC President
