About us

No one covers your community like you

... And no one covers your needs like the CPA

Educate. Advocate. Enhance.

Those three words describe the mission of the Colorado Press Association.

We provide educational opportunities and resources for our members.

We advocate for our members to both the public and the legislature.

We strive to enhance our members' success by promoting the industry and the importance of advertising while also offering programs to help our members.

In short, we are the trade association dedicated to the preservation, progression and modernization of Colorado's newspaper and related industries. It is organized to represent the common interests of Colorado's news organizations.
