The new website also provides all the information you need about the ECA organization, Interest Groups, and the upcoming Boston convention a in much easier to navigate form. Convention planning is in full swing, and the preliminary draft of the program promises a provocative, educational, and entertaining experience! Registration is now open, so sign up today to join us at Boston’s historic Parker House site for the convention: March 29 - April 2.

One of the most important features of this new website is its flexibility to allow us to explore and provide an array of resources that can be of use to scholars, teachers, and professionals in communication. Look for the content of our Resources area to evolve and grow in the coming months. Members will continue to enjoy the benefits of access to members-only resources, while additional content will support the needs and interests of our scholarly and professional community at large.

 Welcome to a new year with ECA!
