Here's what Helium says:

The 100-year-old National Press Club has extended membership invitations to Helium’s five-star writers. Qualify and you can apply to the news club that the nation’s most notable journalists, government officials and top news sources call home.

This partnership recognizes the value of citizen journalism and helps spread awareness of its importance to the new media landscape. This is the first time in the National Press Club’s history that it has reached out to a non-traditional news outlet.
