In these economic times, the Women's Press Club recognizes that many media outlets, organizations and agencies have downsized, leaving some of our colleagues in search of new employment opportunities. We’ve created a special annual membership fee for these individuals. NOTE: Special documentation is required for this membership category. This fee is only valid while the individual is out of work. Once re-employed, the individual will be required to pay the standard membership fee.
