A message from the President
This September marks the beginning of a series of landmark initiatives by which the International Press Club of Chicago will highlight a different and very special country in 2013 and 2014 via our website and through our Monthly Visiting Guest Speaker programs.
Our goal is to encourage everyone to experience their own personal International Journey by participating in IPCC programs and sampling the sights, sounds, and even the flavors of each month's new and exciting guest country!
We are proud and excited to announce that the inaugural country of our series will be the Republic of Turkey and that the Consul General Hon. Fatih Yildiz himself will be hosting the event as our Guest Speaker! The Consul General will enlighten the audience about the unique position which Turkey enjoys as a secular and predominantly Muslim country in such a dynamic region, while presenting certain elements of Turkish Foreign Policy unfolding in a rapidly changing political environment.
This is a members only event and we cordially invite members of Chicago's diplomatic community and the press. Seating is limited and RSVP is mandatory due to security requirements.
Come and join us in this very first special "country presentation" and enjoy the Turkish food and refreshments.
Sincerely, Wayne Toberman
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.
