The National Press Club of Canada Foundation


 Sheila Copps, President, The National Press Club of Canada Foundation

In 1928, Francis Rowse of The Ottawa Journal
 and Guy Rhoades of The Ottawa Citizen posted a notice at the Journal, the Citizen, Le Droit and
 in the Canadian Press office, inviting local editors and reporters to gather at the city police courtroom and discuss finding a special place for fellow journalists to rendezvous and talk shop.
Twenty men came to the meeting and organized
 a small committee to establish a Press Club.

Professional events continue to bring in experts and newsmakers, providing a forum for growth and discussion. Among other major developments
 are co-sponsored events with
the Ottawa Diplomatic Association, The Media Club of Ottawa, the Canadian Association of Journalists
and Carleton University.
