Congratulations on a smart move! Your fellow members − 18 New Jersey dailies, three out-of-state dailies, 165+ weekly newspapers (15 independent weeklies and 17 groups with a total of 150+ papers), four non-English language and seven specialty publications − belong to a dynamic New Jersey community rooted in a noble tradition.

Here's what NJPA will do for you:
Guard Your Interests
Put Advertising Dollars Into Your Revenue Stream
Initiated in the late '80s, our Statewide Classified Advertising Network (SCAN) has grown steadily each year and is used by hundreds of advertisers to place ads inside New Jersey and out of state. Currently more than 135 New Jersey newspapers with a total circulation of over 2,100,000 participate in SCAN.
Motivate Your Staff
Our Advertising, Editorial, Photo and Circulation committees plan training and awards presentation events, and administer their respective annual contests. By coming together in friendly and informal groups, newspaper people can exchange ideas, hone their skills and get fresh ideas and information.
Keep You Informed
News stories, pending legislation, jobs and candidates are posted, as soon as we receive them, on this website and published in the next available issue of InPrint. We do our best to keep you informed of industry developments on both the state and national scenes.
Our annual NJPA Membership Directory, with complete listings of our daily, weekly and college member newspapers, has become the reference Bible of the New Jersey newspaper industry.
Give you the tools to do your job
Legal Hotline: a quick, reliable source for our members to gain expert legal advice on questions about legal issues in most areas of law affecting newspapers. Our attorneys administer the plan at no charge to members. Hotline membership entitles newspapers to a discount on their libel insurance payments.
Informational Resource: We at NJPA take pride in our ability to serve our members in many ways. The one most often utilized by our membership is the freedom to call, fax or e-mail our office with a variety of questions, all of which are answered immediately (or as soon as humanly possible).
Press Credentials through NJ State Police: NJPA works closely with the Office of the Attorney General and the New Jersey State Police in administering the distribution of New Jersey Press Credentials to qualified recipients.

NJPA is looking ahead to our members' staffing and readership needs in years to come. The New Jersey Press Foundation (NJPF) awards several scholarships and internships to college students and high school journalism teachers, as well as scholarships for newspaper carriers and high school students.
To help the industry build readership among young people, the foundation supports a Newspaper in Education Program operated by NIE coordinators at New Jersey daily and weekly newspapers. NJPF also supports the New Jersey Collegiate Press Association, the annual Better College Newspaper Contest sponsored by the Editorial Committee of NJPA and the programs of the Garden State Scholastic Press Association.
