Welcome to MEAA’s CommsPro members area.

Who are you?

You work as media and public relations officers, social media officers, digital communicators, copywriters, website or multimedia producers, speechwriters and combinations of those jobs.

Do you care about being taken seriously in your career, having a job with decent working conditions, where your skills are respected, and you have the tools to excel?

You’ve come to the right place.

MEAA members have stood together for more than a century building good work conditions, respect and long careers for journalists in traditional media settings – now we are organising for the future.

MEAA recognises you are a professional – educated, multi-skilled, creative and passionate about the work you do – and our members want those qualities to be recognised and rewarded throughout your career.

What we do

MEAA CommsPro members are driven – we want career development, training opportunities and the chance to organise for better, consistent and transparent conditions and pay scales across the industry. But we can only campaign to make a difference if WE mobilise to be the change we want to see in our industry.

  • MEAA’s 2018 #CommsPro Good Jobs Survey asked communications and PR professionals what a “good job” in the sector looks like to them.

    More than 100 participants provided insights into current job responsibilities, rates of pay, and the key issues that need to be addressed to ensure communications professionals are employed on good working conditions, are paid fairly, and are empowered to build strong careers in the communications/media sector.
