Foundational Membership – join now!

LINA acknowledges the support of foundation members who apply to join before 31 December 2022 by offering membership rates at discounted by: 40% in Year 1, followed by 25% in Year 2 and 10% in Year 3. This is our way of thanking-you for supporting with us while we get established.

Membership pricing will be set from 1 st July each year for the financial year ahead with notification of any changes issued in early June.

We recognise that starting a news service is hard and expensive. LINA supports start-up newsrooms by offering discount membership rates in your first year of operations.

We are currently inviting Flagship level membership, which gives you access to all LINA resources, tools and guides, group discount offers, networking events, training opportunities, information and opt-in collaborations.

We will be adding an Elevated membership level in time, which will offer more hands-on, direct support, working with your organisation to get things done. This level of membership will be coming online in the coming months, so go ahead and join as a Flagship member and we’ll notify you when the Elevate program is ready to go.
