Message to CPC Members

Dear Capital Press Club Members:

As we usher in 2021, I would like to take this moment to thank you for your membership and support for Capital Press Club.

At the risk of using a cliché, I say with great sincerity that this professional organization for journalists and communication professionals would not be where it is today without your dedication and support. 

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 2021 include how to use digital media techniques and an interactive workshop for self-employed professionals.

As we set our focus on 2021, 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

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