Attending Summit — or looking in? hashtag is #CNPA2017

Final preparations are underway for the 2017 CNPA Press Summit this week in Santa Monica.

If you are at the event, or are one to look in on Twitter, use the hashtag #CNPA2017.

There may be working press on site to cover keynote speeches and Summit sessions, but the official coverage team this year will consist of a reporter and photographer.

Reporting will be Jeff Rowe, a veteran reporter, editor, college instructor and entrepreneur. Rowe was our correspondent at the 2015 Summit at the Hotel del Coronado.

Our official photographer will be Nicole Wong, a multimedia journalist from CSU Northridge whose work has appeared in The Sundial. Wong is also a former staff member at The Channels, Santa Barbara City College.
