In just nine months, NCA will host
its 101st Annual Convention in Las Vegas—the first conference of our
next century (as well as our first time in this vibrant location). As we build
on all that we have accomplished thus far, and commemorated during our
centennial celebration in Chicago, our 2015 convention theme, "Embracing
Opportunities," encourages us to consider what's next... what awaits for
our discipline... what can (and, perhaps, should) be for us, as educators,
scholars, and citizens. As we look to our future, as an association and as
individuals, what kinds of conversations would be most meaningful and,
importantly, how can we contribute?
Over the past few weeks, I have
really enjoyed reading posts on CRTNET by individuals who are putting together
sessions for the 101st Annual Convention, especially because
submissions shape the program that we will share in Las Vegas. NCA Convention
Central features creative calls by NCA units, affiliates, and
special series for competitive papers, panel discussions, paper sessions, performance
sessions, book club topics, preconference proposals, and seminar sessions. In
Vegas, we will carve out space for conversations about potential research
collaborations, innovative instructional ideas, and imaginative ways to share
our scholarship beyond the walls of the academy. Please join us for
interactions about issues that matter to you.
By submitting your work, you will
help us set our agenda for this first convention of NCA's next century. I
encourage you to review the calls and submit your work via NCA Convention
Central by the March 25, 2015, 11:59 p.m. Pacific time deadline. If you have
questions about the fit of your project or panel with a particular unit, just
email the planner and ask for input— planner contact information is available
in each call for submissions. The Convention
Resource Library also offers valuable guidance and tips. I'm excited
for all that we will begin (and continue) in Las Vegas.
NCA Convention Central is open for submissions. I'm excited for us to embrace opportunities, as individuals and as an association, during NCA's 101st Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 19-22, 2015!
