NORMAN, Oklahoma — In the summer of 2020 and again in 2021, the Native American Journalists Association provided free membership extensions as a relief effort in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. NAJA provided this assistance to our members, who were serving their Indigenous communities during this profoundly difficult time. 

During the pandemic, the organization reached a record membership of more than 1,000 and NAJA is calling for those who are coming due or overdue to renew their memberships for 2023.

All memberships include access to NAJA’s newsletter and discounted National Native Media Conference registration. Student level memberships offer exclusive fellowship and scholarship opportunities, and institutional level memberships offer access to the Indigenous Media List and free job postings on the NAJA job board. View membership levels and benefits here.

NAJA is also currently collecting feedback via the membership survey open through Dec. 2. All respondents may enter a weekly drawing for a chance at winning a $50 Amazon gift card. 

Members may access their accounts and manually renew, donate or shop the online NAJA store anytime at NAJA also encourages members to review and update their profiles by logging in using the email account associated with their membership.
