AP Leadership

The Associated Press is an independent, not-for-profit cooperative, founded in 1846. Its membership consists of U.S. newspapers and broadcasters; these members elect a board of directors that directs the cooperative under the AP bylaws and holds an annual meeting for AP members.

Within AP, the senior managers who oversee the organization’s essential operations make up the Associated Press Management Committee, or APMC. The group meets regularly to make the policy and business decisions needed to keep AP at the forefront of accurate, trustworthy global journalism.
