Individual NASPAA memberships are available to adults and high school and college-age announcers. Individuals who have a passion for P.A. announcing and who are interested in becoming better at their craft will be well served to become NASPAA members.
Even if you have not announced, but have often wondered what it would be like to work behind the mic, the NASPAA can be of service by helping you get started. NASPAA members range from beginners to veterans with more than 50 years experience--amateur and professional.
Students who have an interest in broadcasting will benefit from NASPAA membership. Many students use their P.A. announcing experience to help prepare them for broadcasting careers. NASPAA members who have been or who are involved in radio and television will be the first to say that being a P.A. announcer has contributed to their success.
Athletic administrators who hire and assign announcers and/or who manage them will also benefit from NASPAA membership. The NASPAA feels strongly about the need for announcers and athletic administrators to work closely together.

"Having been an athletic director who also happens to have more than 25 years of experience as a public address announcer, I was thrilled to discover that a professional association for announcers even existed. While my career as an announcer began long before I became an athletic director, I was made aware of the NASPAA through my professional association with the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association, and was excited to join an association that allowed me to establish a professional connection between my two vocations. NASPAA has provided me with information and training that have allowed me to improve as an announcer. Whether you are a rookie announcer or a seasoned veteran, the NASPAA can help you to become a better announcer, connect with other announcing professionals and provide tools for self-evaluation and continued professional growth in the field. Like most athletic administrators, I am always looking for ways that I can do a better job managing my staffs and crews. The NASPAA more than meets my needs both as an announcer and an administrator. Without question, it is the best resource for P.A. announcing."
