Welcome to the
Orange County Press Club!

The Orange County Press Club exists to support, promote, and defend quality journalism in Southern California. We believe that a free press is crucial to a free society.


Greetings fellow journalists and members of the Orange County Press Club,

The O.C. Press Club is now accepting nominations to serve on its board of directors. Each term is one year, starting in September, and voluntary. You may nominate yourself, or nominate someone else, as long as that person agrees to be nominated and is a member or WILL be a member of the Press Club come election time.

Board members are expected to be active, attend meetings and events, and have a role in planning activities for the 2015-16 year. During the past year, the O.C. Press Club has organized mixers, panels, an awards gala, an all-day journalism conference at Chapman University, a volunteer evening at Second Harvest Food Bank and more. We're a fun group with a serious purpose.

If you'd like to apply (or nominate someone), please send me a paragraph or two on who you are, why you'd like to join the O.C. Press Club board, and what ideas you have to make the club better. Nominations will be accepted now through July 15. Please email nominations to richiechang@gmail.com.

By July 31, candidate statements will be posted on our website, orangecountypressclub.com, and on our Facebook page. Ballots will go out via email on Aug. 1, and the results will be announced Aug. 15. 

Current board members need to run for re-election. All candidates must be members of the O.C. Press Club by voting time, with dues paid through the end of the year. To become a member, scroll down to the bottom of this home page.

The Orange County Press Club exists to support, promote and defend quality journalism in Southern California. We seek to encourage journalists by providing networking opportunities and by hosting regular events with topics of interest to a broad spectrum of journalists and others involved in media.

If you know someone who might be interested in running for the board or joining the O.C. Press Club, please forward this email. We'd like to encourage new folks to get involved.

Thanks for your attention, and let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

All the best,
Richard  Chang, vice president
