ABA Open Meetings Policy

Media should receive complimentary sets of printed materials needed to  help them provide informed coverage. The Association, in general, encourages media coverage of its activities and cooperation, to the extent feasible, in fulfilling the requests of media representatives.

When media interest is present, Media Relations & Strategic Communications will screen and qualify reporters, handle media registration and issue "news media" badges.
