This annual convention is designed for university students, volunteers and communication professionals to network, learn and experience spiritual renewal. You will hear from experts in the fields of corporate communication, public relations, graphic design, photography, video production, and journalism.

Who Should Attend

Attendees include media/communication professionals who are employed in any corporate setting, nonprofit, freelance, higher education, or communication employees of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (primarily in North America). University students who hope to become communication professionals also attend and see the convention as an avenue to gain professional mentoring and future contacts for employment.
