Georgia Public Policy Foundation Media Policy

August 26th, 2015 by Leave a Comment

GPPFlogoThe Georgia Public Policy Foundation waives the cost of publications and registration fees for public meetings and events to credentialed members of the media.

For media to participate in the Foundation’s public meetings and events or obtain copies of publications, you must be a credentialed member of the media. The Foundation retains the right to grant media passes to print journalists (newspapers, magazine), broadcast journalists (radio or television), wire and news services for redistribution to other news organizations, or online news services (electronic dissemination rather than conventional print and broadcast distribution).

The Foundation does not allow journalists to register as media for the purpose of writing a personal blog, or for persons whose news outlet is funded by an individual; political candidate or party; nonprofit; or activist/lobbying organization.

The Foundation only accepts registrations during normal business hours, and media credentials are not granted until confirmation has been offered by Foundation staff.

Even if payment is made to attend a Foundation meeting, the following terms and conditions still apply.

You may contact the Foundation with additional questions.

Terms and Conditions for Use of Media Credentials at Foundation Events

  • Georgia Public Policy Foundation media credentials must be visible at all times at the meeting.

The Georgia Public Policy Foundation is our state’s leading organization promoting government transparency. The Secretary of State’s office shares the Foundation’s commitment to transparency and responsible stewardship of taxpayer dollars, which is why our agency was the first in Georgia to publish its budget and spending data on a public transparency website.
