ACP’s spring conference returns to beautiful
La Jolla, California, 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.

ACP will announce the 2023 Pacemakers in business, yearbook and online, as well as our 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.

You can also enter current work in the popular ACP Best of Show competition.
