For Individuals

Visual Media Alliance has a lot to offer individual as well as our company-level members. We’ll keep you up to date with training, industry info, networking opportunities and group buying power discounts.

Individual-level membership is required for some services, such as individual health coverage, discounted member price on classes/workshops/webinars, Credit Union, and group discounts on Apple, Adobe and others.

However, we also offer a range of services free to qualified professionals in the creative, web media, marketing and print businesses. These include our annual resource guide, our online member directory, our find-a-job service, and many of the resources in our library, as well as our printed and online newsletters.
