About the GEORGIA PRESS ASSOCIATION
In 1887, the Georgia Press Association was founded to bring together Georgia newspapers.
The goal: Create an organization that would protect, promote, foster and advance the interest of the newspaper industry in Georgia.
Today, the Georgia Press Association (GPA) is still growing, and our members remain among the top business leaders in the state. From rural weeklies to metropolitan dailies, Georgia newspapers are close to the heart and soul of the community in every city and town.
Our members carry out the goal of their early predecessors by securing unity of thought and action in all matters pertaining to the profession of journalism. The membership is guided in its quest by a volunteer board of directors and numerous permanent and special committees.
GPA is active in offering educational and networking opportunities for its members in addition to placing advertising through GPA’s affiliate, the Georgia Newspaper Service, and offering scholarships and internships through the Georgia Press Educational Foundation.
Active membership consists of newspapers that have published for more than two years in Georgia on a weekly basis with a minimum of 50 issues annually and have a bona fide list of paid subscribers plus single copy sales equal to or exceeding 75 percent of the circulation published in its Statement of Ownership.
