Membership Options & Criteria:

NYPA offers two membership options: regular (newspaper) membership or affiliate (vendor) membership. Membership applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors four times annually, in April, June, September, and November.

Regular Membership is extended to newspapers published in the State of New York, ordinarily published at least once per week and no less than once per month, and daily newspapers with circulations less than 25,000, printed on paper in an acceptable newspaper format, including not less than 25% locally generated news/editorial content. The publication must also maintain a known office open to the public where business of the publication is transacted during normal business hours. Regular membership entitles the member to one vote. A chain or group of newspapers published from one plant or under one ownership is entitled to one vote. Click here to download the membership application form.
