Media members include paid professional travel communicators such as travel writers (print and electronic), bloggers, editors, publishers, book authors, broadcasters, photographers, videographers and commercial web producers.

Membership in TMAC does not preclude membership in other organizations such as SATW or PWAC. Media members must be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants.

TMAC has a points-based system for assessing a member’s professional qualifications. It has been regularly revised to reflect the changing media marketplace and it allows writers to qualify for TMAC membership under a wide range of disciplines. Members must requalify every two years.

All members must abide by our CODE OF CONDUCT.
