The Colorado State Press Association was formed in Denver, Colorado on August 8, 1878.[1] In 1889, J.D. Dillenback of the Western Newspaper Association pushed the Colorado Press Association in a new direction, advocating that the CPA should work to raise the professional standards of journalism in the state.[1] In 1920 the Colorado Press Association elected its first female president, Lois F. Allen.[1]
