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.
