C.A.L.P.A. Members Heading to McClellan Park, CA, June 21st to 24th, for the Department of California’s
Annual Convention for the Awards Banquet and the C.A.L.P.A. Officer’s Elections
The 2018 Convention will be extreme exciting, as the competition we had several new entries this year as California dives into the 21st Century integrating media with technology. The competition is becoming much more rigorous as more and more individuals are getting up to par with the latest in technology and entries are coming in from all over the state covering all the various categories. Entries include Newsletters (both print and digital, Editorials, Press Releases, Websites, Social Media, Photos, Videos, and Graphic Art for promotional pieces. The categories are then broken down by Department/Detachment, Districts, Posts, Units and Squadrons; thus allowing Legionnaires, Auxiliary, Sons and Riders all to participate.
So the real questions include, “Are you a C.A.L.P.A. member? – If Not, Why Not Join Today?” and “Did You Submit your Entry This Year? – If Not, Why Not?” Well now you will have to wait until next year to enter, but it gives you a full year to get ready. The cutoff date for submissions for the National American Legion Press Association N.A.L.P.A. is also over with and the competition is being judged now.
Keep checking back and as we will post all the C.A.L.P.A. winners just after the convention.
The winners of the C.A.L.P.A. competition will be announced and honored at a special luncheon at the Department Convention June 23rd.
The winners of the N.A.L.P.A. competition will be announced and honored at a special luncheon at the National Convention in August.
