ABOUT CYPRESS MAGAZINES
Cypress Magazines has been publishing specialty magazines since 1991, when its founder, Jack Crittenden, graduated from American University’s Washington College of Law. Crittenden founded the company in Fairfax, Virginia and The National Jurist magazine for law schools in August 1991.
At first, The National Jurist was distributed in the Northeast. But over the next seven years, it grew in readership and geographic reach until it was national.
In 1997, the company began publishing a version for prelaw students, named PreLaw Insider. The name was eventually changed to preLaw.
Cypress Magazines took over publication of Golf Inc. magazine in 1998. Alan Crittenden, Jack’s father, had founded the real estate and
business magazine in 1991. Alan had founded a golf conference in 1988 that Cypress took over in 2005.
Cypress opened a San Diego office in 2001 and eventually closed the Virginia office in 2004. It opened a Utah office in 2016. Today is has a third office in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
Cypress Magazines began publishing Club Management on behalf of the Club Management Association of America in March 2017.
