Press Club of Dallas

President’s Message

From the desk of President Tony Pederson:

For more than 50 years, the Press Club of Dallas has been the main organization for news media and communications professionals in North Texas. This year we continue with a series of events and workshops that benefit communications on all levels.

Our signature event for 2014 will be A Tribute to Michael Jenkins, the longtime president and managing director of Dallas Summer Musicals. He will be honored as the Press Club of Dallas Headliner of the Year 2014. Michael has made an extraordinary contribution to the performing arts in Dallas and has made many positive impacts in other areas. The event will be Thursday, Nov. 13 in the Music Hall.

The Press Club of Dallas is a 501 (c )(3) organization under the Internal Revenue Service Code. Income from our activities and fundraising goes to support scholarships for students from North Texas who study journalism, public relations, communication and advertising. Our scholarship program is administered by the Communities Foundation of Texas. We are proud of the decades of heritage we have established in helping students fulfill their dreams.
