Rules will be listed as proposed for the year of 2015.  Each rule will be listed by the name of director or member proposing a new rule, or amendment/revision to an existing rule.  Rules will be reviewed throughout the year with the BOD voting in November. Exceptions will be any rule the BOD deems neccesary to implement immediately in the best interest of CPRA.

After the November BOD meeting each rule will be listed as passed or failed.  Members are encouraged to contact their event director with any input or proposals.

Rule proposals will be listed below as received.  Proposals must be presented no later than August 1, 2014.  The exception will be a rule deemed detrimental to CPRA.  Please check back often.
