Join APWF

Would you like to join Albuquerque Press Women and Friends?

Eligibility
Anyone interested or involved in communications–men and women–is welcome to join Albuquerque Press Women and Friends. We have two categories of membership:

Full Membership
National Federation of Press Women–$79 (Student rate of $30 available)
(Retired–no longer receiving substantial income from communications–and an NFPW member in good standing for 5 consecutive year–$48)

New Mexico Press Women–$13

Albuquerque Press Women–$20 (if you are a National and State member)

Total of $100 is paid to the National Federation of Press Women and is billed in November.

Full membership entitles you to receive mailings from all three levels of the organization, attend the national convention and other national, state and local functions, enter state and national contests, and enjoy all the “perks” of full membership.

Local Membership only
Albuquerque Press Women and Friends–$20

Paid separately to the local chapter. Due in January, may be paid at the January meeting.

Special for new APW members:
    Join January through August: $20
    Join September through December: $10
   

Local annual dues save you the $5 fee charged nonmembers at the monthly luncheons, the frequent E-GRAMs that serve as our newsletter, discounts for products and functions held or sponsored by Albuquerque Press Women and Friends.

Local membership does NOT entitle you to membership in either the state or national organization and you will not appear on their mailing lists.

Annual Communications Contest
Anyone–member or non-member–is eligible to enter the annual state contest in which all New Mexico affiliates (chapters) participate. Anyone winning at the state level must pay national and state dues in order to have the winning entry submitted for the national contest.

Please mail your check, payable to ABQ Press Women, to:

    Hi,
    I’m an MPAA-accredited entertainment journalist who, although an New Mexico native and UNM Journalism grad, moved back here in 2014 after over 30 years working first as a screen/TV writer (WGA member) then entertainment journalist for various websites. I’ve worked a few local set visits with Adrian Gomez of the Journal and he would vouch for me. I review films, Blu-rays and do interviews for Kidzworld.com (a large site for teens and tweens) and FrontRowFeatures.com, a syndication site with an adult clientele.

    What do I do to join the Albuquerque group? At this point, don’t think I need to join on a state or national level.
    let me know?
    Thanks,
    Lynn Barker

      Hi Lynn,

      Our Albuquerque Press Women and Friends organization does not meet in July and August. Our next lunch meeting for APW is Monday, Sept. 12, at Claim Jumper at Jefferson and I-25. There’s more about the meeting and the speaker on our homepage.

      We would love to have you attend this meeting and to join our group. To join for one year, send a $36 check made out to Albuquerque Press Women and provide your contact info (email, address, phone) to the name and address on this page, or you can bring your check or cash to our meeting. Thanks for your interest — we look forward to meeting you!
