For 132 years, The Press Club of Cleveland has provided a place for journalists, public relations, corporate communications, marketing and advertising professionals to gather and exchange ideas.

The Press Club of Cleveland continues to promote excellence in journalism, educate future journalists and maintain the rich history of journalism in Cleveland. Provocative and informative programming is scheduled throughout the year with discounts offered to Press Club members. The Press Club of Cleveland sponsors the Excellence in Journalism competition and the Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame induction ceremonies each year.

The Press Club would like to thank our Corporate Partners, whose sponsorship helps to make our club viable and our programming possible:
