Last month I was accepted into the National Press Club, a Washington, DC-based private club for journalists and communications professionals with about 3,500 members.
“It is a social and business organization dedicated to supporting the ongoing improvement of the profession of journalism,” according to its website.
The National Press Club has been around for about a century. Its headquarters is in downtown Washington, DC, so I expect to be working from there often.
(And, yes, I blocked out my membership number so no one impersonates me and runs up my tab at the bar.)
