ECA 2023 - Instructional IG Conference Anouncement

Good afternoon,

Welcome to March, which means the ECA convention is fast approaching. To be exact (depending on when this email gets distributed), we have 28 days until the convention kicks off. The convention will host approximately 192 sessions and I am sure you are eagerly planning your schedules for the week. 

While making those schedules for the convention, I hope you can add these Instructional Communication Interest Group sessions:

Finally, a few last minute things:

  1. I will be putting together the business meeting agenda during the next few weeks. Please contact me before the convention (3/24/23) if you have any items to add.
  2. All IGs need to send a representative to the Nominating Committee meeting on Friday, March 31, from 8:30-9:45 in the Annapolis Room at the Baltimore Hyatt. Please let me know if you are able and willing to serve in that role for our IG. 
  3. Don’t forget to register for the convention– early registration ends March 8.

See you all in Baltimore for a great convention.

All the best,

James Baker
