In May,  more than 40 members of Washington Women in Public Relations (WWPR) joined in the fun at a special reception hosted by The National Press Club (NPC)!  The event was part of a new partnership between the NPC and WWPR that provides WWPR members with special discounts and priority access to the National Press Club’s Event Services and Broadcast Studio/Multimedia Production Facilities.

The evening kicked off with a cocktail reception in the Press Club’s First Amendment Lounge, one of 11 different event spaces available to WWPR Members to host multi-day meetings, seminars, news conferences  luncheons, dinners, cocktail receptions and other special events for anywhere from 15 to 1,500 people.  Guests were given special “Passports” to complete fun activities to earn their “Press Pass” and learn more about the Press Club’s offerings as well as engage with WWPR leadership and other members.

Following the meet and greet, the group was treated to a behind the scenes tour of the Press Club’s Broadcast Operations Center, including taking turns in the “anchor chair” on camera to interview fellow WWPR members!  Check out some of the social conversation and recap video below.


“We are very excited to be working with WWPR to offer their members great deals on event space in downtown DC as well as preferred access to our broadcast studio that can help them in the great PR campaigns and projects they are working on for their clients and organizations,” said Brian Taylor, director of business development at The National Press Club..  “It’s always rewarding to us to meet so many talented people and we love it when everyone learns something new about the Press Club that they didn’t know we could do, which I think everyone did tonight!”
