APME is a professional network, a resource for helping editors improve their news coverage and newsroom operations. Our committees and annual conferences bring editors together to share ideas and discuss the future of the industry.

The organization is open. We encourage members - from major metros to the smallest of dailies, broadcast outlets, online operations and educators and students - to get involved and share their opinions.

Best of all, APME provides a platform for news managers to meet other news professionals. Connections made through APME can provide you with your own set of personal journalism contacts and many lifelong friendships.

Memberships are $150 a year, with $50 student memberships available.

For short time only …

2-for-1 memberships!

After you join or renew your membership here, you can sign up a second colleague, journalism educator, student or another newsroom or broadcast leader for free until June 30. 

After you join or renew, simply send an email to sjacobsen@ap.org with the following information to add someone else for free.

• First and last names

• Email address

• Area of the industry: Newspaper Media Leaders, Broadcasters, Educators or Students

We will sign them up for a full one-year membership, and send them a note prompting the new member to complete their profile at apme.com.

SUPPORT APME WITH A LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP

The Associated Press Media Editors is offering an $800 lifetime membership. "APME is 100 percent focused right now on enhancing and adding to the benefits of being a member," said former APME President Brad Dennison. 

To take advantage of the $800 membership, please contact Sally Jacobsen at (212) 621-7007 or by email. Or click the Renew button on the right.
