Newspaper Association of America

Formation June 1, 1992 (1992-06-01)
Headquarters Arlington, Va.

The Newspaper Association of America (NAA) is a trade association representing approximately 2000 newspapers in the United States and Canada. Member newspapers represented by the NAA include large daily papers, non-daily and small-market publications, as well as digital and multiplatform products. The organization organizes and hosts NAA mediaXchange,[1] which is the newspaper industry's annual conference.


Headquartered in Arlington, Va., just outside the nation’s capital, the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) focuses on the foremost issues shaping the newspaper industry today. Among the association’s top priorities are public policy and legal matters, as well as revenue and audience development for the broad range of products and digital platforms now offered by the newspaper industry. Further information can be found at

As stated on its website, the NAA serves the newspaper industry in strategic efforts to:

  • Serve as a catalyst for industry growth
  • Identify and disseminate examples of industry innovation
  • Provide tools to exchange information and ideas
  • Advocate and communicate industry views and interests to the Federal Government and to third-party standards and measurement bodies
  • Communicate the vitality of newspaper media to external constituencies including the advertising community, Wall Street and the news media.[2]


On June 1, 1992, seven newspaper-industry associations merged to create the Newspaper Association of America.[3] The associations included the American Newspaper Publishers Association (founded in 1887), the Newspaper Advertising Bureau, the Association of Newspaper Classified Advertising Managers, the International Circulation Managers Association, the International Newspapers Advertising and Marketing Executives, the Newspaper Advertising Co-op Network, and the Newspaper Research Council.[4]


NAA partners with the Newspaper National Network, a print and online advertising sales partnership, and the NAA Foundation, which emphasizes youth readership and the cultivation of a more diverse media work force.

NAA is a member of the World Association of Newspapers, the World Press Freedom Committee and the International Press Telecommunications Council.
