Local Media Association has international memberships available to publishing companies outside the USA and Canada with one or more newspapers. Local Media Association members may be dailies, weeklies, free or paid. Local Media Association members can cover suburban, urban or rural communities. Metro dailies are not eligible for membership. The news content of the member newspapers must be originated locally and be of general interest to the community for which the paper is published.
