NAA members represent newspapers in the United States and around the world – dailies and weeklies, community-based and nationally-focused, in large cities or small towns – that share a quality and continuity in their product. Qualifying members are newspapers that are published at least one time per week, bear 25 percent editorial content of both local and general interest, and carry a minimum of 70 percent paid circulation.
NAA newspaper membership is a corporate-level membership and dues are based on annual circulation. NAA fosters strength and unity in the industry through “Group Membership” where two or more qualifying newspapers under common ownership are required to join as a group.
All full-time employees of member newspapers benefit from the services and resources provided by NAA. International newspaper members are located outside of the United States and Canada, and dues are based on annual circulation.
