Board of Governors

A 14-person board of officers and directors governs the Milwaukee Press Club. Officers are elected annually, while Directors are elected for two-year terms. The President-elect is an elected position, with the seat-holder automatically becoming President upon the election of a new President-elect each fall. The new board is installed during the club’s annual meeting in September.

In addition to elected members, non-voting ex-officio members round out the board.
