So often, academic labor goes unrecognized and unrewarded. The work you have done to submit proposals for the National Communication Association’s 105th Annual Convention in Baltimore is worthy of recognition. As primary program planner for the convention, I hope these words of thanks and appreciation help to recognize the service you have provided your colleagues, students, communities, and profession.

I witnessed so much excitement about the convention theme, “Communication for Survival.” The incredible ideas you shared with the programmers are inspirational. Of course, I am also very grateful to those who did not follow the convention theme, as well; contributions to the profession are diverse and varied and should be recognized regardless of whether or not they connect with the convention theme.

The Annual Convention serves as an incredibly important space for communing, connecting, educating, inspiring, energizing, and caring. It allows us to share our work, get feedback on it and our ideas, gain and give mentorship, build community, learn how to be the leaders we want to be, and so much more. Thank you, again, for all of your work to make the NCA Annual Convention in Baltimore a fantastic event for everyone. On behalf of the planning team and the staff of the National Office, thank you for your submissions; we all look forward to seeing you in Baltimore in November.
