The Newspaper Association of America today rolled out its new International Federation, for the first time allowing newspaper professionals from outside the United States and Canada to join NAA as individuals. NAA currently has seven other Federations for newspaper professionals in specialized areas such as advertising, circulation, promotion, marketing, research new media and classified. The International Federation differs from its counterparts in that industry professionals will be able to join even if their company is not a member of the association.
Membership in the International Federation is $150 per year and is only available to non-U.S. and Canadian newspaper executives. Membership entitles newspaper professionals to copies of NAA's magazines, Presstime and TechNews; Internet access to electronic copies of the seven Federation newsletters; participation in one NAA-sponsored e-forum; and Federation member discounts on NAA's products, services and conferences.
