A message from the President
An old friend and self-proclaimed mentor, Frank, once, about 50 times or so, drilled the following advice into me… that…“1 gotcha is worth 10 gimmees”….”so you need to try to avoid those gotchas before you go into the hole so deep you’ll never get out…..”!
Wise words indeed which really need to be heeded by Politicians, Statesmen, those rarely, if ever biased, Nationally Syndicated Reporters-at-large, and Press Secretaries alike! (Read more ...)
President, International Press Club of Chicago
"The World is not Waiting for Chicago" by Chris Robling, was perhaps the year's most thought provoking discussion. IPCC members thought it was the best meeting this year. Chris brought insight and perspective to issues that Chicago must deal with or become a city left behind.
IPCC listed with the Overseas Press Club of America
The Overseas Press Club of America was founded in 1939 in New York by a group of foreign correspondents. The OPC seeks to maintain an international association of journalists working in the United States and abroad; to encourage the highest standards of professional integrity and skill in the reporting of news; to help educate a new generation of journalists; to contribute to the freedom and independence of journalists and the press throughout the world, and to work toward better communication and understanding among people.
It is with great sadness that we, at the International Press Club of Chicago, bring to you the news of the sudden passing of Mrs. Lorraine M. Toberman, Mother of the our President, Wayne Toberman this past Thursday, the 6th of March 2014.
Though housebound for a number of years, and unable to physically attend our events, Lorraine, being of Czech, German and Austrian lineage, was an avid supporter of the IPCC in spirit and via stories and tales. In younger years, she and her family seldom missed such events as the Annual Hobe Day Parade in Berwyn, or the Annual Bakers Dance on the South Side in order to keep alive the family’s sense of community and heritage.
Lorraine’s viewing will be at the Drechsler, Brown, and Williams Funeral Home, located at 203 S. Marion Street, Oak Park, Illinois, this Wednesday, 12 March, from 3:00 until 9:00 PM. Her Funeral Service is scheduled for 10:00 AM on Thursday, 13 March at the same location with a procession to Concordia Cemetery, Forest Park, Illinois, internment to follow. “She will be missed”.
