and NBA legend Earvin "Magic" Johnson will deliver the keynote address


at the company's annual CJ


University event this fall. A Major League Baseball team owner,

for the fast-growing affiliate marketing industry. It is designed to


empower all stakeholders in affiliate marketing, including senior
