The International Motor Press Association is this country’s oldest organization of automotive journalists and public relations professionals. Founded in New York City nearly 50 years ago, IMPA has thrived over the decades, blossoming into the premier organization of its kind. Over the course of its history, IMPA has spawned similar organizations elsewhere in the country, while continuing to provide its members with a convivial meeting place while keeping pace with our industry and its varied technologies. Our current membership includes journalists from all media -print, broadcast and Internet- as well as public relations representatives of all the world’s major automotive manufacturers and suppliers. And since IMPA was founded, all members share the same privileges of membership, whether they are journalists or public relations professionals.
