The Overseas Press Club of Cambodia (OPCC) has elected a new board for 2022.
The 2021 OPCC board held annual elections last week on 9 December, with former president and lifetime member Luke Hunt facilitating the vote. Seven candidates stood unopposed for the available positions.
The new board for 2022 is:
- President: Matt Surrusco
- Vice president: Quinn Libson
- Secretary: Gerald Flynn
- Treasurer: Danielle Keeton-Olsen
- Board members: Jack Brook, Juliette Buchez and Thomas Cristofoletti
The new board includes staff and freelance reporters, editors and a photojournalist working for a number of local, regional and international publications and organizations, including Cambodianess, Future Forum, New Naratif, the Southeast Asia Globe, VOD and others.
In 2021, despite Covid-19 again impacting the OPCC’s ability to host in-person events, we managed to safely organize a series of gatherings and programs. These included a few monthly drinks meet-ups, the Newsroom mentorship program and HEFAT training held online with Silk Road Training.
With hopes that more in-person events will be possible in 2022, the OPCC pledges to continue connecting and supporting the journalist community in Cambodia in the new year. We plan to continue with our monthly drinks meet-ups to socialize and catch up with colleagues, and to hold various events throughout the year, focusing on professional development and networking opportunities. Along the way we hope to hear from members about what they would like from the OPCC.
Keep an eye on OPCC’s social media channels for news about upcoming events.
