New Members of the SPC Board of Directors
The Sacramento Press Club is managed and operated by an Executive Director and volunteers, including a 15-member Board of Directors. We are very pleased to introduce the two newest members of our Board – Melanie Mason and Nicole Moore. Moore will also serve as the SPC Treasurer.
Melanie Mason covers California government and politics for the Los Angeles Times. Before moving to the Sacramento bureau in 2013, she worked for the Times in Washington D.C., where she covered money and politics in the 2012 presidential election. She’s done stints at a number of D.C.-based outlets, including the Washington bureau of the Dallas Morning News, Politico, PBS NewsHour and The New Republic. A Los Angeles native, Melanie graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and got a master’s in journalism degree from UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. As a j-school graduate, she knows the importance of supporting journalism education, and it’s an honor to work with Sacramento Press Club to continue its long tradition of providing scholarships to up-and-coming reporters.
Nicole Moore is an attorney who represents employers and health care plans in Sacramento. She also works as a freelance journalist, and provides reporters pro bono help in obtaining public records. Nicole supports the SPC in order to encourage and facilitate budding professionals pursue their passion for journalism.
The Sacramento Press Club is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to helping the next generation of journalists through scholarships to journalism students in California.
