ECA 2023 - Rhetoric & Public Address IG Conference Updates

Greetings, Rhetoric and Public Address members!

We are about two and a half weeks out from the ECA conference, and ECA really needs your help. If you are presenting, you need to register. Don’t delay! Save yourself some money, and help ECA get an accurate catering count, by pre-registering. Pre-registration ends at 11:59 PM this Wednesday, March 8.

This year’s program boasts 192 sessions, including an excellent line-up in Rhetoric and Public Address. We hope to see you at many of R&PA’s sessions and particularly encourage you to come to our business meeting on Friday, 3/31, immediately following the Top Paper panel. Check out the full schedule for the Rhetoric & Public Address program below! 

Also, if you’re presenting and have a respondent for your panel, make sure to send them a copy of your paper early enough that they’ll have a chance to read it.
