Article Review

Articles submitted by current CPRA members are considered on an exclusive basis. However, non-members who submit content will also be considered. Once an article is submitted for consideration it becomes the property of CPRA, and we reserve the right of first refusal. It may take several months to review the article and, if accepted, schedule its publication. If your piece is time-sensitive, please note that in your submission. For questions about the status of your article’s review, please contact CPRA at cpra@cpra-web.org.

Articles should be well written, readable and interesting to broad categories of membership. Avoid writing articles about highly specialized, technical topics or procedures that the broader CPRA membership would not find useful. We look especially for articles on topics of broad interest that are newsworthy and describe important developments in areas of parks and recreation.

CPRA reserves the right to make final determinations without author approval as it deems appropriate in the editing, format, and publication of all submissions.
