Membership Application – News Media

News Media Membership

Per standards set by the N/MA Board of Directors, member newspapers are published at least one time per week and carry a minimum of 70 percent paid circulation. N/MA fosters strength and unity in the industry through the “Group Membership” provision, stating that two or more qualifying newspapers under common ownership are required to join as a group. Daily newspaper membership dues are based on daily circulation which may be verified by a third-party source and the N/MA cost per copy. Weekly newspaper dues are at a fixed rate determined annually by the N/MA Board.
