Associate membership shall be available to press services working in close cooperation with the regular members of the association, and to the primary official publication of a state convention that does not have a newspaper.

Both regular and associate membership in this association shall be granted upon the vote of two-thirds majority of the members attending an annual business meeting. They shall remain members until two-thirds of members attending an annual business meeting vote to terminate that status.
