Magazine Membership: (Voting/Affiliate) - Click for full description

AMPA's membership committee determines whether a magazine applicant qualifies as a member. Upon acceptance, magazines are awarded either Voting or Affiliate status based on the following eligibility criteria:

1. Voting Magazine members

Voting Magazine membership is awarded to representatives of magazines, journals, and periodicals who:

Voting Magazine members have the use of all AMPA programs and services, and are eligible to stand for office, to vote at association meetings and to participate in association referenda.

Note: Membership in AMPA is awarded to individual magazines, not publishing companies. When applying for membership, applicants publishing multiple titles must apply for every title they wish to have admitted and supply copies of each for review by the membership committee. Digital magazines may be admitted to membership on a case-by-case basis. Future applicants of AMPA will not be approved on the basis of a precedent set by the acceptance of a member presently in the association.

"Publisher" means any individual, corporation, partnership, unincorporated association or trust publishing a periodical. The publisher of any qualifying periodical may become a member in respect of that periodical, and shall in every case, except where the publisher is an individual, appoint some person to act as the representative of that periodical for membership purposes. The publisher may change this representative at any time by written notice to AMPA.
