Public Policy

 

The National Newspaper Association’s mission is to protect, promote and enhance American’s community newspapers. 

NNA needs the support of every community newspaper in order to work closely with policy officials to create a legal and regulatory environment conducive to the growth of community newspapers. 

 

Postal

NNA works daily on postal issues that affect community newspapers. Its goals are to achieve fair rates, efficient service and a level competitive playing field between newspapers and direct mail competitors.

 

Public notice

Public notices in newspapers are part of the three-legged stool of government accountability. Public notices help to inform the public on activities by the government and other public entities. Public notices have been included in newspapers from the beginning of the Republic. Now they are also on many newspapers’ websites.


Join the Congressional Action Team

The Congressional Action Team (CAT) is NNA's grassroots team composed of newspaper publishers from across the country who volunteer to contact their Senators and Representatives when legislation affecting community newspapers is introduced or when legislative activity is necessary. CAT members are asked to simply call their members of Congress or write a letter to express their concerns on behalf of community newspapers. All newspaper publishers who are members of the National Newspaper Association may join.
