Convention Update: Program Selections Finalized and Travel Grants Available
Submitters to the 101st NCA Annual Convention have been notified via email of the status of their program submissions. Submitters can also check the status online at NCA Convention Central. More than 100 NCA interest groups, special series planners, and affiliate organizations are offering their best programming; the energy of the Las Vegas location will be matched by more than 1,100 convention sessions, all organized around the conference theme “Embracing Opportunity.” The online convention program (accessed via NCA Convention Central) is now available, and convention registration and hotel reservations are open. Early Bird registration is open until September 18.
In support of its commitment to promoting diversity within the Communication discipline, NCA offers travel grants for student members of NCA’s caucuses (Asian/Pacific American Caucus, Black Caucus, Disability Issues Caucus, Caucus on LGBTQ Concerns, La Raza Caucus, or Women’s Caucus) to attend the Annual Convention. This year, the NCA Executive Committee has increased the allocation of funding for the travel grants. For more information on the grants visit the NCA website. Application deadline: September 4.
