Georgia Press Association

Georgia Press Association Promoting the interests & well-being of Georgia's newspaper industry.
In 1887, the Georgia Press Association was founded to bring together Georgia newspapers. Their goal: Create an organization that would protect, promote, foster and advance the interest of the newspaper industry in Georgia. Today, our members remain among the top business leaders in the state. From rural weeklies to metropolitan dailies, Georgia newspapers are close to the heart and soul of the community in every city and town. Our members carry out the goal of their early predecessors by securing unity of thought and action in all matters pertaining to the profession of journalism. The membership is guided in its quest by an 18-member board of directors and numerous permanent and special committees. GPA is active in offering educational and networking opportunities for its members in addition to placing advertising through GPA's affiliate, the Georgia Newspaper Service, and offering scholarships and internships through the Georgia Press Educational Foundation.
