Voting associate memberships in America's Newspapers are available to companies that provide products or services to newspapers.  This includes journalism schools, which train the future leaders of our industry.

The primary benefit of your membership is connections with decision-makers in the newspaper industry.  If you do business with newspapers, your company needs to be a member of America's Newspapers.

Associate members enjoy all benefits of membership, including:

  • Being part of the advocacy effort that stands with newspapers on issues of importance to the industry.
  • Member pricing at resource-rich events with a large pool of attendees, speakers and vendors, and expanded and improved opportunities for free digital training and idea-sharing. This includes our Oct. 6-8 virtual conference — PIVOT 2020.
  • Sponsorship opportunities.
  • Coming soon: the ability to advertise on the website of America's Newspapers.
  • A listing on our website.
  • A twice-weekly newsletter and periodic sections from America's Newspapers in Editor & Publisher Magazine.  We encourage our associate members to send their news to us for inclusion in the newsletter.
