Melbourne Press Club

From the Melbourne Press Club

24 October 2019
Over the course of the past 48 hours, the Melbourne Press Club (MPC) has received resignations from President Adele Ferguson, Vice-President Michael Rowland and Chief Executive Mark Baker.
The resignations followed a successful mediation process this week with a Club member, as governed by the MPC’s rules.
The MPC has with regret accepted the resignations and thanks Adele, Michael and Mark for their significant contributions to the club over many years respectively.
The MPC Board met this morning and resolved that current Vice-President Eileen Berry will become Interim President and Acting CEO, and that the search for a permanent CEO will commence immediately. In addition, the Board has committed additional resources to the MPC’s administration to ensure forthcoming events and activities continue as scheduled.
