Welcome to the Association for Communication Administration
The purpose of ACA is to promote discussion, study, criticism, research, and application of effective principles of education administration for the communication disciplines.
Please take a few minutes to browse around our "in-progress" web site. Visit pages, open a few documents, follow a few links, and definitely spend some time reading the first edition of ACA's newly resurrected journal!
Things are moving ahead with ACA! Fruitful discussions were held at the NCA convention in Orlando, and we are looking forward to more energized conversations this November at the NCA convention in Washington, D.C. Our call for submissions follows below.

Call for Submissions:
2013 National Communication Association convention
The Association for Communication Administration in affiliation with the National Communication Association invites 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. Papers and panels addressing any area of administration are invited for submission, but papers and programs that address the convention theme are especially encouraged.
Submission Information: To speed review and planning procedures, only completed papers and panel proposals can be accepted.
Individual papers are those submitted directly by an author(s) for consideration and not as part of a pre-conceived paper session. Papers are reviewed individually. Papers should include a title and a description and contain no author-identifying information on the title page or through the body of the paper. Please indicate your willingness to participate in Scholar to Scholar by clicking the appropriate agreement box during the submission process.
Paper sessions are sessions submitted as pre-conceived and complete presentations of a number of papers. The papers are not submitted or reviewed individually; instead, the entire session is submitted for consideration as a whole. Paper sessions should include a title, an overall description, a rationale, participant contact information, and titles and descriptions for each paper presentation.
Panel discussions are panels submitted as pre-conceived and complete sessions of persons discussing a topic or issue. No papers are presented as part of a panel discussion. Panel discussions should include a title, an overall panel description, a rationale, and participant contact information.
Deadline for Submissions: All submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, March 27, 2013.
All submitters are encouraged to review the Professional Standards for Convention Participants prior to submission. Helpful resources, including live and recorded step-by-step instructions on how to submit, are available in the Convention Library.
Inquiries should be directed to Alfred Mueller via e-mail: email@example.com
