2013 National Communication Association convention


The Association for Communication Administration in affiliation with the National Communication Association solicited submissions for NCA's 99th Annual Convention in Washington, D.C., November 21 - November 24, 2013.

The convention's theme, Connections, encourages scholarly exploration of the ways in which administrative practices and issues draw attention to our unique place among the disciplines. As scholars of communication, we are well positioned to explore how communication has intersected with various aspects of administrative life within the contemporary university.

Final program announcements are pending.
