We’re very excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Neil Chase. Neil is the executive editor of The Mercury News and East Bay Times. His team won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking coverage of the tragic Ghost Ship fire. He previously worked as an editor at The San Francisco Examiner, The Arizona Republic, CBS MarketWatch and The New York Times. He also was a professor at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. In recent years, Neil has consulted with publishers and advertisers to develop and implement new models for journalism and marketing. He also serves as chairman of the Board for Student Publications at his alma mater, the University of Michigan.

 

We’re also delighted to honor Tim Redmond with a San Francisco Press Club Lifetime Achievement Award. Tim has been a political reporter and editor in San Francisco for more than 35 years. He started as a reporter at the Bay Guardian, and over the years served as city editor, managing editor, and executive editor. Five years ago, he founded 48hills.org, the city’s independent, progressive digital daily newspaper. He has taught at the University of San Francisco (where he currently teaches journalism) and San Francisco City College. Tim also is the co-author (with Marc Mowrey) of Not in Our Back Yard: The People and Events that Shaped America’s Modern Environmental Movement (William Morrow, 1993). He has won more than 30 national and local journalism awards.

This year marks a change in leadership for the SF Press Club Board. We will vote for our new officers at 5:30 p.m., right before the evening begins. If you would like us to mail you a ballot to return, please send your home mailing address by October 24 to sfpc@cox.net. Questions?
