White House Correspondents' Association℠ OFFICERS AND BOARD

Since 1914, the White House Correspondents' Association℠ has operated independently of the White House and the White House credentialing process. We intend for the White House Correspondents' Association℠ to remain independent of that process.

Consistent with the First Amendment, the White House Correspondents' Association℠ stands for inclusiveness in the credentialing process so that the White House remains accessible to all journalists. We hope that individual episodes do not obscure the broader principles of a fair and evenhanded credentialing process that serves the goal of free and full exchange of information.
