From the President Dear Friends and Members

Dear Friends and Members

As the year draws to a close it’s a great moment to look back and take stock.

To thank all of you for being members or for looking to the Press Club for your events and press related needs. In total the Press Club hosted more than 400 events this year.

We are proud that our Director Laurent Brihay took the initiative to launch with the Geneva Press Club, the Berliner Presse Club and the Press Club de France “We Are Kiev Press Club” and continue to stand in solidarity with Ukraine.

We close the year with our climate drinks co-steered by Think Conscious and their NewsandBooze, we have had a great array of speakers including journalists, and cabinet members of Commisisoner Timmermans and Vestager, the last event will be held on 13 December with climate reporter from POLITICO Karl Mathiesen. Our commitment to climate journalism and developing a European Network of Climate Journalists is vibrant having attended the COP27 this year and building from there. The New Year will be the same.

In October the Press Club has coordinated the Daphne Caruana Prize of Journalism for the European Parliament and in November we handed the Presidency of the International Press Clubs Association to the London Press Club and with them very well with their term to come. We thank their President Doug Wills and Vice-President Martyn Bond for an excellent event in London and ceremony.

If you have ideas for events to come in 2023 or partnerships please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Wishing you a peaceful new year, as much as possible.
