About the North American Travel Journalists Association

NATJA’s mission is to provide educational and networking opportunities to help members excel in their craft and exceed their professional expectations.

 The industry is experiencing substantial changes as developments in publishing and communication change roles, processes and opportunities for travel journalists and travel destinations. The North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA) is committed to helping media members navigate these changes, learn new skills and techniques and position themselves to prosper in the new multiplatform travel journalism environment and be among the top tier of travel journalists. As the only professional organization to promote the symbiotic relationship between destinations and freelance, independent media, NATJA provides education and tools for Convention and visitors bureaus and destination marketing organizations to succeed in their objective of developing travel and tourism opportunities for their constituents.
