Kathy and I just returned from the 2012 Association for Business Communication’s 77th Annual International Convention in Honolulu. If you were there, you know what a fantastic opportunity it was to network, make new friends, visit with old friends, and learn what the best teachers and researchers in business communication are doing. Approximately 250 people from 20 countries attended, providing a rich and exciting experience. Program chairs Roger Conaway and Oliver Laasch did a great job in scheduling the sessions, arranging technical support, and offering wonderful dinners and social events.
Next year’s conference is in New Orleans, but why wait? If you want to share your expertise or learn from others, you can attend one of these regional ABC meetings: Midwest and Southeast regions, Louisville, March 6 – 9; Southwest region/Federation of Business Disciplines, March 12 – 16, Albuquerque; and Asia-Pacific region, March 13 – 15, Kyoto, Japan.
