It is an association and support group available for journalists around the world who may not already be affiliated with a

is a service and database which provides every
member with a press card identifying one as a journalist and a URL posted on the back verifying that
journalist's credentials through our website: iaij.com. These two organziations work together to provide any
individual with the opportunity to become a verified journalist by meeting our liberal requirements of one
high quality report posted on a broadcast news medium. We
believe it is the right of every citizen to become a journalist; and we enable them with the tools available
at our two venues. Now for some frequently asked questions:
How much will it cost: Membership cost can be found under "Join Us."
What is the commitment of the founders to the association and database: The commitment is for
at least the next 25 years.
Who is eligible: Any adult anywhere in the world.
How do I get involved: Just go to our website - iaij.com or iaij.org and click on "Becoming A Member".
Why are you doing this: We are interested in keeping the ideals of free speech and freedom of
thought alive, especially as it pertains to journalism. We support the amateur and professional journalist
who desire additional credential verification on an international level from a non-political association.
