Our Mission

To serve the evolving professional, educational and social needs of our media community, foster journalistic excellence and advance the public’s interest in and understanding of a free press.

About the Press Club

The Atlanta Press Club has grown to become one of the largest and most dynamic professional journalism associations in the country. Our membership encompasses Atlanta’s burgeoning media community — print, broadcast and online, big and small, national and local media outlets. Over half of our 500-plus members are working journalists. The balance is public relations professionals, educators, retirees and students.

The Atlanta Press Club has received recognition nationwide for our Newsmaker Luncheons. Recent speakers include Jeff Zucker, Tom Brokaw, General David Petraeus, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, Governor Nathan Deal, and more.

As a professional and networking organization, APC hosts the Evening Enrichment Series. Members receive free admission to these monthly forums that feature topical discussions including the latest in social media, first amendment issues, and more.

The Atlanta Press Club is the place to mix and mingle at some of Atlanta’s favorite social events. Our mixers and parties afford members an opportunity to mix and mingle at Atlanta’s hippest bars and restaurants.

The Atlanta Press Club sponsors a series of televised political debates and hosts First Amendment programming. The Club also supports students through its internship placement program.
