Please join us for our October lunch back at our club’s old haunt, the Petroleum Club, with our speaker Robert Decherd, CEO of DallasNews Corporation (owner of The Dallas Morning News and its digital news sites — Nasdaq: DALN). We will be discussing the state of media today, including the important role of local newspapers in modern society. We welcome wider-ranging questions as well, such as about Robert’s work as a leader of Parks for Downtown Dallas (some in our community may remember his talk on this topic several years ago).


Robert is an alumnus of St. Mark's School of Texas, where he was editor of the school newspaper and received the School Flag at graduation. He is a former board president of St. Mark’s and a Distinguished Alumnus. At Harvard, Robert became President of The Crimson and Class Orator of his class. He is active in the Dallas community (including being Chairman of Parks for Downtown Dallas), in the Harvard community (including as a long-time member of Advisory Council for the Harvard University Center for Ethics), and in the journalism community (including being a member of the FCCs Media Security & Reliability Council). Robert has been listed in Forbes’ Most Powerful People.
