APN Membership

APN aspires to be a true cooperative, democratically-run and managed by its members. As a member, you will have the chance to make proposals and vote on how the organization should be run.

For example:

  • Should APN endorse political candidates?
  • Should APN sell advertisements or instead rely solely on member contributions?
  • What types of news should APN cover?
  • Have a role in crafting APN’s mission statement and editorial policies.

This idea is still in the conceptual stages, but look for more about APN becoming a cooperative soon!
