The Radio-Television Correspondents' Galleries issue three forms of membership credentials:
The following lobbying, employment and income restrictions apply to all three forms of Gallery membership:
Gallery members must:
Your chief attention must be given to—or more than one-half of your earned income must be derived from—the gathering or reporting of news for radio stations, television stations, systems, or news-gathering agencies primarily serving radio stations, television stations, or systems. Full-time students are not eligible for active membership.
If you are a freelancer or work for a production company, your application must be signed by the news director of your chief news client or you must submit a letter from a client news organization certifying it is currently using your services.
If you are a foreign broadcaster, you must submit a letter from your embassy verifying that you represent a broadcast news organization or submit other documentation that the Executive Committee shall require.
Approval of applications may be subject to meeting additional criteria established by the Speaker of the House and the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration.
Applications for active Gallery membership can be obtained from the Senate Gallery (S-325 of the Capitol).
Gallery cards must be returned to the Senate Gallery if you change your affiliation or move from the Washington, DC, area. Gallery cards may not be worn while covering Congressional activities for non-news purposes.
