The Akron Press Club was founded in 1971 to promote a free press by offering a forum to discuss issues of the day. By becoming an Akron Press Club member, you are supporting civil conversations that help us understand our community and move it forward.

Your support of the Press Club also provides funding for scholarships for the next generation of journalists and public relations professionals. The Press Club, in conjunction with the John S. Knight Memorial Scholarship Fund, each year awards 10 scholarships of $5,000 each to college students.

Membership puts you on our email list that keeps you informed of Press Club events. 

We offer several levels of membership:

  • $50/year individual
  • $40/year retiree
  • $15/year student
