NALPA (National American Legion Press Association) is an association of editors, writers, business managers, historians, public relations officers and individuals who are members of The American Legion, the Sons of The American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary, American Legion Riders and other subsidiary organizations.

Members of NALPA encourage the exchange of ideas, promote the development of local newsletters and public relations activities, strive to communicate the corporate goals of The American Legion family organizations and recognizes achievement through an annual newsletter and newspaper awards program. NALPA has been working to facilitate this communication for more than 80 years.

In 1922 then National Adjutant Lemuel Bolles, appointed William Richie, Jr., an Omaha, Neb., lawyer, as chairman of a special committee to consider the organization of a National American Legion Press Association. The following year NALPA was established with 20 department and local publications forming the initial membership.

In 1925 NALPA expanded membership eligibility to publication staff members, Department and Post Historians and professional newspapermen interested in Legion publicity.

Today, more than 1,000 members of NALPA are involved in local communications initiatives with a central purpose: to keep members up-to-date on local organizational happenings. Members of NALPA believe that local newsletters and other efforts are essential to a growing membership program.
