A message from the President
I’d like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude to the members of the International Press Club of Chicago for their vote of confidence when they elected me their new President for 2013.
In keeping with IPCC policy that no President shall serve more than two consecutive years in office, our 2011 and 2012 President Mr. Lee Salberg, ended his term on a very high note, with many successes to his credit, on the 16th of January, when I was installed as the new 2013 IPCC President. His accomplishments were, for lack of a better term, monumental during his tenure. In tribute to his unselfish nature and willingness to support the IPCC in the future, Lee did not hesitate one iota when asked to remain active and in place as a valued member of the Board of Directors, except, to paraphrase his response, after just the briefest of pauses, when he said, that he had planned to be around anyway….why, did we think he was going somewhere?
Thanks to our stellar and distinguished speakers for 2012. From flying high in the sky, to the conflict in Kashmir, to the writings of Ernest Hemingway, the mysteries of deep space and the JPL and the intracacies of capturing global news and images by the Associated Press our luncheon series entertained, informed and gave our members lots to ponder for the year. The International Press Club of Chicago will continue these luncheons into 2013. We hope you'll join us in the forthcoming year!
