To apply for membership a person must be nominated and seconded by two current members, and supply a résumé of his/her press, media and/or communications career and background. The application is then considered by the committee, which – according to the statutes - must approve it unanimously.
In some cases, people who have previously worked in a content generation role in the media may also join.
As one of the basic tenets of the club is, “to provide a regular social forum/meeting place for resident and visiting foreign and Spanish journalists”, all members are encouraged to attend at least one or two meetings a year.
Note: Membership is renewed each January. If a member joins part way through the year, the annual fee is applied pro rata. E.g., join in June, pay 20€ until January.
