Applying for Press Credentials for NEA’s Annual Meeting and Representative Assembly

Members of the news media wishing to cover the NEA Representative Assembly must apply for press credentials from NEA Communications. Applicants must provide the name(s) of their employing newspapers, magazines, radio stations, television stations, or news-gathering organizations. Each applicant will be notified as soon as her/his application is processed.

Press credentials will be granted only to bona fide working press. Credentials will not be issued to representatives of lobbying, special interest, or advocacy organizations. Delegates to the NEA Representative Assembly are not eligible for press credentials.

To pick up credentials, each press registrant must provide photo identification AND a current, valid press ID issued by federal, state, or local government OR a letter from your editor/producer, on letterhead, from a bona fide journalism outlet.

Only media credentialed by NEA will be admitted to NEA meetings, facilities, and news events. Each registrant must pick up his or her own credentials. Those without proper identification will not be admitted.

Badges may be picked up June 30 - July 6 in Communications, Room B210 of the World Congress Center.
