What happens to my application once it is submitted? Our membership director checks your application for completeness and accuracy. If something is missing, if we are unable to confirm information, or if links to clips of your publications history do not work, we will reach out to you for clarification or more information.

Once our membership chair is satisfied with your application, we submit it to the Board of Directors for approval. It can take up to 7 or more days for Board members to vote depending on their travel schedules and access to the Internet.

You’ll receive an Email from the Association about the approval or disapproval of your application. If you are approved, you’ll get a welcome notice with your login data from our Association Management system. Once the latter occurs, you’ll be a member of the Association and we send your personal press card. 

We hope we’ve made this process as easy as transparent as possible and we look forward to welcoming you to the Association.
