As the date to submit abstracts for our upcoming April 20, 2012 global research conference, “Communicating Beyond Borders: Building Relationships Among Governments, NGOs and Corporations”approaches, here’s a (brief) list of reasons why YOU should attend:
- Meet with other scholars/educators and practitioners with similar research interests from the region, nation, and even the world.
- Expand your own boundaries. Our conference focuses on more than strictly public relations with an interdisciplinary approach, welcoming scholars from all fields with an interest in government, NGOs and corporate communication.
- To engage – this is not a college lecture hall: our conference is set up so you get the chance to interact with other participants through a round table discussion format.
- Be inspired to research a new area; at the conference, with diverse participants and topics, you may be motivated to study a new topic you had never considered.
- Recharge your batteries – by April, ‘spring fever’ is in full-force. Rejuvenate yourself and your academic interests through interaction with other scholars/educators, practitioners, and students.
- Visit Charlotte! Selected to host the 2012 Democratic National Convention, Charlotte is booming as never before – with auto racing, museums, gardens, and excellent Southern cuisine, the city has a lot to offer. Bonus: the average temperature for April is a comfortable 72 degrees.
And to find out the other benefits not listed, be sure to submit an abstract and make plans to attend!
