State J-Day at CSU, Sept. 26, 2019

Start planning your J-Day on the campus of CSU in Fort Collins.

All registration is online and the process is quick and easy. The registration form for schools is here.

Everyone starts the day in the Grand Ballroom for a welcome from CSU, announcements, short presentations from our new Adviser of the Year and Administrator of the Year. Four 45-minute learning sessions follow the keynote address, with up to 50 choices presented by professionals and top media advisers.

Due to its size, you will find the PDF for the 2019 state conference in two parts, pages 1-6 and pages 7-12. The 2019 program will be available after Sept. 19. Feel free to download copies and use them to help plan your day in Fort Collins.

Registration cost is $25 per person for students and advisers who are part of CSMA-member media. Advisers who present a session at J-Day have their registration waived. Finalized Best of Show entry procedures, etc., have been sent via our listserve, with a deadline of Sept. 20 for all materials.

Make your bus reservations as soon as you can, before you get shut out. The opening session will begin at 8:45 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26,  and the awards session will end by 2 p.m. Buses park free near Moby Arena. Passenger vehicles and small vans may park in CSU lots near Lory but must have a valid parking tag hanging from rear view mirror.

IMPORTANT: If you are ordering parking tags for the CSU lots ($12 each), you MUST have those orders in NLT Sept. 8, as the tags will be mailed to you. If you order parking tags after Sept. 8, they may be picked up at registration on J-Day.
