Welcome to the Alabama Communication Association. The 2013 convention program is now available at the convention page. The convention will be held on July 27, 2013 at the University of Montevallo. Our keynote speaker will be Carl Cates, who currently serves as the Executive Director for Southern States Communication Association and as department chair of the Department of Communication Arts at Valdosta State University. We have an interesting slate of panels, so we encourage everyone to come out for some engaging scholarship.
Once you arrive at the campus, registration and panels will be held in Morgan Hall. Most mapping programs will take you to N. Boundary Street, so here are the directions from that point. A campus map can be found in the PDF version of the program.
1. Continue straight on N. Boundary St.
2. Turn right onto King-Harmon St. (After “Becoming” statue)
3. Turn left onto College Dr. (3-way stop at Flower Hill)
4. Turn next left onto Wills Way
5. Parking will be available immediately
Please recognize that if you are on the program, we are expecting you to attend the conference. At the 2012 convention, we had a significant number of no-shows who did not pay for the convention. This became problematic in that we had to pay for the luncheon (which is included in the conference registration fee) in advance, which represents a significant expense. We would like to trust people to be professional, so we are resisting the tactics used by other organizations. We look forward to seeing you all in Montevallo!
