SCOM Faculty Goes to NCA
Every year, the National Communication Association, the governing body of communication practitioners, hosts a conference for its members. This year's conference, the 99th, will take place from November 21 to November 24, 2013, in Washington, D.C.

Dedicated to fostering and promoting free and ethical communication, the NCA promotes the widespread appreciation of the importance of communication in public and private life, the application of competent communication to improve the quality of human life and relationships, and the use of knowledge about communication to solve human problems."(www.natcom.org/about)

From administrators, presenters, chairs, panel members, and respondants, they bring the best of their ideas to share with others in the field.
