Webber will have ten Criminal Justice Management majoring students representing the Chapter Alpha Omego Rho at the ACJA Region Five Conference.

Since Webber is hosting the Conference students are ineligible to compete due to ACJA regulations. However, Webber students that are members of the ACJA Chapter are currently fundraising to attend a conference that will be hosted in Nashville, Tennessee in Spring 2015. Students are currently selling candy, sodas, and t-shirts to fundraise for the upcoming event.
