The Interpersonal Communication Division exists to (a) stimulate research and scholarship on interpersonal communication; (b) develop and disseminate methods and materials for instruction about interpersonal communication; (c) facilitate communication among those interested in the study of interpersonal communication, both within the association and with other parties; and (d) plan convention programs and preconference workshops dealing with interpersonal communication. The division also honors outstanding scholarship in the form of the Gerald R. Miller book award, the Franklin H. Knower article award, and the Early Career Award, as well as a top dissertation award. In addition, awards are offered for top paper in the division and the top student paper. The top four papers and top student papers are recognized at the division's annual meeting. Finally, each year at the NCA Annual Convention the division hosts a panel in honor of the Mark L.
