NCA 102nd Annual Convention

Plans Progressing for NCA’s 102nd Annual Convention

May 25, 2016

The NCA 102nd Annual Convention will advance “Communication’s Civic Callings.” Meeting in downtown Philadelphia November 10-13, just a short walk from Independence Hall and many of the other founding locations of American democracy, Communication scholars will address questions about the complicated pasts, compelling presents, and coming possibilities of our civic life.

The convention will feature an Opening Session where NCA members, united in their commitment to using communication activism for the common good, will share their stories from the frontlines of change. Listen as they engage in spirited dialogue about why communication matters, and how, and to whom; and please lend your voice to our collective celebration of those who put their bodies on the line and words into action.

Communication’s vitality to effecting community change will be evident at the NCA Social Justice Exchange. The Exchange will connect attendees with activists, community leaders, and practitioners from the greater Philadelphia area. Our hope is that the Exchange will spark new and dynamic conversations about Communication and the common good, and result in the kind of engaged scholarship we all hope to achieve.

Plan to join us in Philadelphia! Registration will open in July.
