2021 Eastern Communication Association Conference
A Virtual Event
Wednesday, March 24 - Sunday, March 28, 2021

Our vision for the 2021 ECA conference is to engage “Resilience” thoughtfully as a persistent response to overcoming obstacles, thriving despite challenges, and adapting to an ever-changing global landscape. This conference is a fully on-line, virtual experience that will feature a variety of offerings and opportunities, including panel/paper sessions, short courses, research workshops, and keynote presentations. Conference attendees can also participate in special programming highlighting the areas of “Resilient Teaching,” “Resilient Research,” and “Resilient Academic Leadership.”  

New features for 2021 include a conference opening event, conference closing awards ceremony, and evening fireside chats to promote community and thought leadership.
