• ACP/CMBAM Midwinter National College Journalism Convention

La Jolla is known as San Diego’s Jewel by the Sea. The pristine beaches, jaw-dropping views and California sun make it a favorite spot for our convention. This February, San Diego/La Jolla will host ACP’s Midwinter Convention and CMBAM’s Annual Convention. This convention will be the first of its kind, bringing business & advertising and editorial together under one roof.

Some specific tracks will include:

  • – Immigration reporting
  • – Arts & Entertainment reporting
  • – Business and editorial design and creativity
  • – Alternative revenue options
  • – Business 101 for new and editorial advisers
  • – Joint sessions for editorial and business management departments


Besides the new offerings, we will have on-site critiques, reviews, meet with a business professional, meet with Bill Elsen (former editor at The Washington Post), Speed Networking for business students and recruiters and the Best of Show awards.

CMBAM will present their annual awards on Saturday.

California College Media Association will also present their awards on Saturday.

Pacemaker finalists and winners, for California staffs unable to make it to Louisville in the fall, will be presented at the Saturday general session.

The exhibit hall will feature vendors promoting business and editorial solutions, and career and education opportunities.

Come join us in southern California for great sessions, great exhibitors and awards.
