College Media Business & Advertising Managers
CMBAM is a nonprofit membership organization for university student media groups that connects sales, marketing, design and management students — and advisers — to support independent student journalism.
CMBAM members have access to a library of resources at any time to download and share with their staffs. The ever-growing collection has more than 50 resources on sales, social media, design, native advertising, special events and more.
Membership has its privileges.
CMBAM membership offers your organization the tools and resources to create success, innovate and thrive in the student media world.
Membership is organizational; when a publication or group joins CMBAM, all students and advisers on staff are considered members of CMBAM and will have access to all benefits offered by CMBAM.
You can join at any time, and your membership will be active for the current academic year.
