CPA Directory Advertising
Share |

The annual CPA directory is mailed to all CPA members and ordered by dozens of individuals, libraries, and universities each year. Advertising in the 2017 Catholic Press Association Directory ensures that your company reaches a targeted audience that is interested in the Catholic press. Take advantage of this opportunity to reach people who need your services.

Click here to download an advertising agreement form for the 2017 CPA Directory. Please email completed forms to efreed-brown@catholicpress.org or fax to (312) 361-0256.

Please note that right of first refusal for featured pages (cover pages, divider tabs, and special position pages) is offered to last year's customers. Placement options, prices and mechanical information are listed below.
