Letter from the Atlanta Press Club Chairman of the Board

After more than 10 years leading the Atlanta Press Club, our President Lauri Strauss has decided it’s time to move to her next challenge. I can speak without hesitation for the board in saying that we are so grateful for the time she has given to our organization. The growth and success of the club during the past decade would not have been possible without her leadership, determination and collaborative spirit. She was both a diplomat and a driver of the club’s mission. Most importantly, she did it all with integrity.

As evidence of that fact, Lauri has graciously committed to work closely with the board to help identify, hire and train a successor. She also has agreed to remain in the role until a new leader is ready to take the helm to ensure a smooth transition for the Atlanta Press Club.

As we transition, you can help. Please find the job description here. We would appreciate you sharing this with your network.

On behalf of the Atlanta Press Club board, we appreciate Lauri’s many years of service and wish her all the best.
