I joined as a grad student. Club leaders had organized talks at my school, welcoming me to events and making introductions at networking events and panels. At regional and national conferences, I developed skills, built my network and made new friends. Now, as a professional journalist, I’ve joined the club board to give back to a community that has given me so much.
I joined the Deadline Club around 1990, at the dawn of a marketing-driven post-truth news era. Like today, it posed new and growing challenges to some fundamental principles of our trade. Many rank-and-file journos became discouraged, but I saw the Deadline Club had our backs in ways that employers couldn’t. I was elected President in 1992 and never looked back.
It’s rewarding to be involved in a group where everyone has one single concern: supporting and advocating for journalism, and seeing the impact of it on the community. The members of the Deadline Club come from all work backgrounds in media and span all ages, but we are all enthusiastic about being involved. It feels good to put in the effort of nurturing our profession.
