Don't be fooled by sites that use stock photos of reporters, photographers & journalists. You may even find websites offering "Free Press Credentials", however they keep NO records of their members. If there is no record, what are you really becoming a part of? Will they be there when you need them?

We are the original. The USPA! We are here to support our members and to help them achieve their goals!

History speaks for itself.
