ECA 110th Convention - Attendee Interactive Submission Process

Dear Members, 

I hope this announcement finds you well and enjoying the summer months. I, along with Executive Director Cheryl Casey, have some exciting news regarding submitting and reviewing submissions for consideration of presentation at ECA 2019.  

ECA will now be using Attendee Interactive (AI) to manage submissions and reviews. This is the same system used by the National Communication Association so you may be familiar with it. The deadline for submissions remains the same, October 15, 2018 at 11:59 PM. You will be prompted to create a new User ID and Password to submit your work. An email will be sent to the membership in the next couple of months to announce when Attendee Interactive will be open for submission. Additional information, including a link to the submission page, will be sent to ECA members on the day the submission website opens. 

Your patience as we establish this new process is appreciated. We are confident that transitioning to AI will facilitate an efficient submission and review process leading to an excellent conference experience.  

Please direct questions to Cheryl Casey at or Katherine Thweatt at

Thank you. 

Dr. Katherine S. Thweatt
Graduate Director & Associate Professor of Communication
Eastern Communication Association Vice President
