Bloomington Press Club meets at noon on the fourth Monday, January through November. Meetings are currently held via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but during normal times we meet the Indiana Memorial Union’s Coronation Room, adjacent to the Tudor Room. Members and guests are welcome.

The club invites guest speakers to address media-related topics. Recent guests have included IU President Pamela Whitten; Bloomington Herald-Times News Director Jill Bond; Galen Clavio, director of the IU National Sports Journalism Center and associate professor at the Media School; and Dave Askins, publisher of the B Square Bulletin.

Take a student to lunch: [NOTE: This applies to when the club meets in person.]

The club welcomes IU students and supports their efforts by paying for their lunches at press club  meetings. All you have to do is pay for one extra lunch at any time, and the treasurer will credit our student lunch account.
