The newly elected Kashmir Press Club members take the oath of office in Srinagar on Friday.
In its maiden meeting today, the management committee of Kashmir Press Club (KPC) adopted a resolution to take welfare steps for the members of the club.
“It was decided that a welfare fund would be created for the purpose and also a sub-committee would be set up to suggest more such welfare measures for the members,” said the KPC statement.
The statement said that it was also decided that a separate sub-committee would be constituted to look into steps for developing the club infrastructure and create more facilities.
“The steps intended to be taken on priority basis include setting up of a fitness and health centre, a well-furnished restaurant, library and a separate lounge with workstations for the journalist members,” it said.
“In this regards, the club solicits the cooperation of the administration and concerned departments for improving the basic infrastructure in the premises,” it added.
It was further decided to constitute an academic sub-committee for organising/coordinating workshops, training, guest lectures for the journalists both from English and vernacular media for their capacity building.
“The committee also decided to dedicate a separate lounge inside the club for the female journalists with an aim to promote and encourage their participation in the club activities,” said the statement issued by KPC.
