Membership Options & Criteria

NYPA offers three membership options: voting (newspapers or magazines) membership; non-voting (digital news site only – no print product) or affiliate (vendor) membership. Membership applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors four times annually, in April, June, September, and November.

Voting Membership:

Our voting membership is extended to print newspapers and magazines published in the State of New York. These publications are ordinarily published no less than once per month, printed on paper in an acceptable format, including no less than 25% locally generated news/editorial content. The print 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 and a chain or group of newspapers published from one plant or under one ownership is also entitled to one vote.
