What will my company’s dues be?

Newspaper dues will be based on paid subscribers, instead of circulation and digital reach.  Our models suggest that most newspapers will pay about the same or slightly less than they are currently paying.  Companies that are members of both SNPA and Inland will certainly see lower membership expenses.

Subscriber-Based Dues Structure for Newspapers:

Paid Subscribers Annual Dues
Under 7,500 $250
7,500-10,000 $500
10,000-20,000 $750
20,000-30,000 $1,000
30,000-50,000 $1,500
50,000-100,000 $2,000
More than 100,000    $2,500

Discounts are available to newspaper groups.

What happens to the dues I have paid?

The 2019 dues that your company has paid to Inland or SNPA has transferred to America's Newspapers, and your company will become a member of America's Newspapers until the end of 2019.  You will receive your 2020 dues statement from America's Newspapers soon.
