Workshop 2005

Woman's Press Club of Indiana was founded in 1913 to provide female communicators a chance to work in their chosen field during a time when few women entered journalism or publishing. (Learn more about our history.)

Today, our members work are reporters, editors, broadcasters, freelancers, educators, publishers and public relations professionals working for a variety of organizations. Several of our members are authors of fiction and non-fiction books.

Our mission is to advance professional standards, provide exchange of journalistic ideas and experiences, and coordinate efforts of interest to communicators.

We provide scholarships in connection with our communications contest. Browse these pages and discover the benefits, services and worthwhile projects that make WPCI important to its members.

We meet four times a year, in March, May, September and November, at locations around the state. Two meetings are workshops addressing various topics important to our members. The May meeting is dedicated to our state contest awards.

Many of our members also attend the National Federation of Press Women conference each fall. WPCI is one of the founding members of NFPW, and WPCI continues to operate as an affiliate of this national group.


Qualifications:

Professional communicators who live or work in Indiana and are actively involved in any aspect of communications for remuneration (pay) are eligible for active membership. These include:

WPCI Code of Ethics

"As a professional communicator, I recognize my responsibility to the public, which has placed its trust and confidence in my work and will endeavor to do nothing to abuse this obligation.

"With truth as my highest goal, I will adhere to the highest standards of professional communications, never consciously misleading reader, viewer or listener, and will avoid any compromise of my objectivity and fairness.

"Because I believe that professional communicators must be obligated only to the people's right to know, I affirm that the freedom of the press is to be guarded as an inalienable right of the citizens of a free society. I pledge to use this freedom wisely and uphold the right of ocmmunicators to express unpopular opinions as well as the right to agree with the majority."



The fine print:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. -- First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States
