ACP/CMA Spring National College Media Convention session proposal
Thank you for proposing a session for the Spring National College Media Convention.
The convention, presented virtually March 18-20, 2021, is sponsored by Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Association, in partnership with California College Media Association and the Journalism Association of Community Colleges.
This form is for convention planners and self-nominating speakers. Complete a separate online form for each proposed session.
Provide complete information, including the full first reference of your school/organization. We journalists appreciate you following Associated Press style as best you can.
Include a working email address for every proposed speaker. If you are proposing someone else as a speaker, confirm that you're doing so with the person you're proposing.
Teaching a session does not give the speaker free registration to the rest of the convention. If you plan to participate in any other convention activities besides the session you are proposing, you should still register for the convention.
All forms are forwarded immediately to convention planners coordinator for review.
