About Us

 The Association of Community Publishers represents publishers of community papers from coast to coast, reaching millions of homes on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. These papers are united in providing the best advertising coverage to their clients and valuable advertising information to their strong and loyal readership base.

The Association of Community Publishers members are owners, publishers, general managers and sales managers of free-circulation community publications throughout North America. Our diverse membership ranges from small, independently owned publications with circulations less than 5,000 up to divisions of major communications companies publishing millions of copies every week. The common bond among ACP’s membership is that all publications are distributed free-of-charge to the readers in their designated circulation areas.

ACP is a member-driven organization, led by an elected board of directors who set the group’s direction in carrying out that mission. Polices, activities and administration of the organization are directed by the board and a variety of committees focusing on specific areas of the industry and organization. Day-to-day operations are conducted by a professional staff. Membership in ACP assures you the opportunity to network and learn from the best the community publishing industry has to offer!
