Washington DC–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–Feb. 20, 2004–The National Association of Hispanic Publications Inc. membership keeps growing. This month, two new members, Inmigrantes en Acción of Florida and Atlanta Latino of Georgia, joined the Association that includes over 200 Hispanic publications around the country.

“The NAHP is the most prestigious association for Hispanic publications in the U.S., and it is important for us to be a part of it. Our goal is to get more exposure on a national level through the NAHP, to showcase our newspaper as a publication that strives to meet the highest standards of journalism, as well as to achieve the opportunity to network with national advertisers,” said Farid Sadri, President and CEO of Atlanta Latino.

At NAHP, members have access to many benefits such as advertising and print media trade conferences and audit circulation programs. Last year, the NAHP Foundation, the sister organization of NAHP Inc., embarked on a national campaign to enhance the viability of Hispanic publications with the program, “Audit Means Money,” sponsored by the Verizon Foundation. The program offers free circulation audits to small Hispanic-owned publications.

“The benefits are many. The NAHP Audit Circulation Program helps members to increase their credibility with readers. Also, NAHP’s rules demand members to keep up high-profile professionalism, which is beneficial to members and the Association,” said Omar Jimenez, member since 2003 with La Guia del Sur de Florida and President of Inmigrantes en Acción.

The monthly Inmigrantes en Acción was formed in February, 2004 while the Atlanta Latino was founded in 1999 as a Web portal and launched as a printed weekly publication in 2002.
