CNAV Membership

There are more than 70 members of the Community Newspaper Association of Victoria.

Our member papers each represent their own communities throughout Victoria, from rural and regional areas to the suburbs of Melbourne. These volunteer-driven papers inform and educate their communities, strengthening them socially and economically and help them to be resilient in times of hardship. They publish stories to let their residents know and understand the history and culture of their people and localities. Between them, they distribute a total more than 180,000 copies of their papers to their communities each issue.

Why join CNAV?

The easy response is why not? CNAV is a whole network of community owned newspapers.  Membership of CNAV is very affordable. If you are a member of a group publishing a community paper for your local area, your paper can apply to join.  All applications are processed by the CNAV committee.
