If you're being offered credentials without the US Press Association holographic seal, embossed seal or MemSearch Verification you are not receiving a genuine USPA article.

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?

While there are other organizations using USPA as their acronym, we have been using the USPA acronym in the press/media industry since 1999. Other sites attempting to use this name are simply trying to create confusion and ride the success we have had for over the past two decades. We are the original. The USPA!

We are here to support our members and to help them achieve their goals! History speaks for itself.
