newsMedia MEMBERs

Many of the largest News Media companies in the country are counted among NAC members. The Coalition welcomes our newest member this quarter, The Advocate in Baton Rouge!


affiliate members

All NAC Affiliate Members enjoy many benefits including newsletter ads, discounts on conference sponsorships, and access to the complete NAC member list. The group lost two long-standing Affiliate Members this quarter: Nielsen split off Claritas earlier this year and neither have elected to continue; and, CIPS Marketing Group was acquired recently by ACI Last Mile Network. But, clearing this "space" may have created an opportunity for other business partners to benefit from higher involvement. Talk with your vendors about becoming a NAC Affiliate Member.



Corporate memberships enable NAC Publishers to participate in the Coalition while also lowering dues for their NAC members - making it more practible for their other News Media companies to become Coalition members!
