Dear CCA Community,
The Executive Committee of the Carolinas Communication Association is writing to announce that the 2021 annual conference will transition to an online-only virtual format. The Executive Committee reached this decision after much deliberation and in pursuit of shared understanding. As always, the health and safety of our members is the priority in our decision making process.
The Executive Committee also consulted with membership about a virtual conference and a full 80% of respondents expressed their interest in attending a virtual option, amidst our ongoing COVID 19 public health pandemic, which continues to impact both conference travel and institutional budgets. We are grateful for our members’ input and their support.
Together, we believe that a virtual conference is the best way to convene our community during these challenging times. We look forward to gathering in a digital space in the Fall of 2021. And our hope remains to be back in person in 2022 in Aiken, South Carolina.
We will be in touch before April 1, 2021, with more information about the specifics of the CCA 2021 virtual conference. We are grateful to our community for their enduring support and we are excited for what’s ahead.
The Executive Committee of the Carolinas Communication Association
