NNA Allied Membership

Receive more than $10,000 in benefits with your NNA membership!

• Trade Show Booth. NNA hosts an annual convention and trade show each fall for more than 350 owners, publishers and senior staff from community newspapers across the nation. As a member, you will enjoy discounted booth rates.

• Priority Booth Selection. The exhibitor prospectus is e-mailed to Allied Members and those who exhibited in the prior year's show two weeks in advance of the prospect list, giving you priority booth selection. You will also have priority notice of convention sponsorship opportunities.

• Publishers' Auxiliary and rE-print. NNA's premier publications keep our members abreast of what's happening in the industry. Members say Publishers' Auxiliary is the No. 1 reason they join NNA. As a member you will receive complimentary subscriptions.

• Advertising. Based on your membership level, receive discounts on classified and display advertising, vendor announcements in rE-print, logo buttons and rotating ads on NNA's website,

• Mailing Lists. As a member, you can rent the NNA membership list at a substantial discount.

• Acknowledgments. Your company will be highlighted twice a year in Publishers' Auxiliary and will have links from NNA's website to your company's website. Partners will receive a free magazine page advertorial per membership year. Partner members will also be highlighted at NNA's annual convention and trade show.

• Member Registration Rates. NNA's Government Affairs Conference gives you a Washington networking opportunity you can't afford to miss, and our annual convention is an opportunity to learn what's hot and of concern to community newspaper executives. You can register for both at discounted member rates. Full registration allows you to mingle with convention attendees on and off the trade show floor.

• Newspaper Research. A portion of Partner memberships will help fund an annual State of the Community Newspaper Industry survey. As a partner, you will receive your own copy of the results of this survey, packed with insights on community newspaper readership and their buying habits, and a census of the community newspaper universe. Allied members can buy into this program for an additional $1,000 per year.
