Our Mission

The mission of the Connecticut Press Club is to promote and uphold ethical standards in communications, to protect the First Amendment and educate members and the public about its importance, prepare our members and the next generation for careers in a changing media landscape, facilitate networking and the exchange of ideas, offer professional development opportunities, and recognize and reward excellence in communications.

History

The Connecticut Press Club is an affiliate of the National Federation of Press Women (NFPW), and includes both male and female members. The Club was founded in the 1970s as the Connecticut Women’s Press Club. Our base was once comprised of print and broadcast journalists, but we welcome all types of communications professionals who live or work anywhere in Connecticut.
