and to beautiful La Jolla
It’s one of our favorite sites for one of our best conferences — and a welcome destination in the spring.
This conference brings together collegiate journalists and advisers from across California and across the nation, with helpful sessions, critiques, advice and feedback.
Our sessions focus on topics you need
From advertising and marketing to reporting across platforms, our breakout sessions will tackle the topics that you need — for your publication, your staff, your readers and your career.
We’ll include the fundamentals and then focus on the latest trends in the fast-changing environment of collegiate journalism and media.
Leading our dozens of sessions will be experienced journalism professionals and award-winning advisers — speakers whose expertise can help you at your skill level.
We’re planning a much-needed boost to conclude the academic year and prepare you for what’s ahead.
We also welcome your ideas for session topics at the ACP spring conference.
Join us to celebrate your success
ACP will announce its top national awards, the Pacemakers, in business, online and yearbook, as well as its Individual Awards in business and advertising.
The conference also celebrates the top collegiate work among California colleges and universities, with the year’s CCMA and JACC award winners.
